On 24 May, the Council of the European Union adopted the fourth tranche of €500 million under the European Peace Facility (EPF). 

This will allow the EU to further support the capabilities and resilience of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to defend the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the country, and protect the civilian population against the ongoing Russian military aggression.

This disbursement brings the total amount of support under the EPF to €2 billion.

The scope of the equipment to be provided in the new support package is in line with the current priorities as expressed by the Ukrainian government. A total of €490 million for military equipment are designed to deliver lethal force for defensive purposes, and another €10 million will cover the provision of equipment and supplies, such as personal protective equipment, first aid kits, and fuel.
