EU increased support for Ukraine to €3.1 billion
The Council of the European Union adopted additional assistance measures under the European Peace Facility (EPF) to further support the capabilities and resilience of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, said in the statement.
The sixth tranche worth €500 million will now bring the total EU contribution under the EPF for Ukraine to €3.1 billion.
“The mobilization of an additional €500 million by EU member states is yet another proof that we remain steadfast in our support to the Ukrainian armed forces to defend the country against the escalating illegal aggression. Russia’s latest indiscriminate attacks on Ukrainian civilians and civilian infrastructure are another proof of Russia’s complete disrespect for human rights and international law. The EU will continue supporting Ukraine as long as it takes and as long as is needed,” said Josep Borrell, High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.
