EU announces additional €205 million in humanitarian aid
EU is allocating another €205 million in humanitarian assistance for Ukraine — this brings total EU humanitarian aid funding and the value of in-kind assistance to over €700 million in response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, €13 million of which is for projects in neighboring Moldova.
Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič, who visited Ukraine on June 9, 2022, said: “For more than 100 days, we have witnessed unnecessary suffering and countless violations of international humanitarian law. In this moment of crisis, our duty is to stand by the most vulnerable. We have swiftly responded by considerably scaling up our presence in Ukraine. With this funding, our humanitarian partners are providing food, water, healthcare, shelter, protection, and cash assistance. We are also working closely with the Ukrainian authorities to ensure the assistance provided by the EU Memb661er States is aligned with the constantly evolving needs. Through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, we have delivered millions of life-saving supplies to Ukrainians, and we are committed to supporting Ukraine as long as it takes.”
