EC allocates additional EUR 110 mln in humanitarian aid to Ukraine
The European Commission announced the allocation of an additional EUR 110 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine in light of the difficult situation caused by the war waged against the country by Russia.
The corresponding announcement was made on Tuesday in Brussels by the press service of the European Commission.
"As Russia's war against Ukraine continues, the humanitarian situation in the country remains dire. The onset of winter poses further challenges to the already vulnerable communities impacted by the war. The Commission is therefore allocating EUR 110 million in humanitarian aid of which EUR 100 million will go to operations in Ukraine and EUR 10 million to support Ukrainian refugees and host communities in Moldova," the EC said in the statement.
The EC said this new funding will help EU humanitarian partners provide essential services such as cash assistance, food, water, shelter, healthcare, psychosocial support and protection.
According to the latest data, the total amount of EU humanitarian aid in response to Russia's war in Ukraine amounted to EUR 843 million.
Additionally, in light of last year's deliberate Russian attacks on Ukraine's energy infrastructure, the EU is also prioritizing emergency energy support, deploying a further 84 power generators from its EU strategic reserves. In total, more than 5,000 power generators were sent to Ukraine through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. In addition, the EU is coordinating private sector donations to supply critical energy equipment to Ukraine.
