EU announces additional €205 million in humanitarian aid, as Commissioner Lenarčič visits Ukraine

On 9 June, the EU allocated another €205 million in humanitarian assistance for Ukraine. 

The new funding was announced on the occasion of a visit to Ukraine by the European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič.

Lenarčič headed to Ukraine to meet with humanitarian organisations and high-level Ukrainian government officials to help coordinate the EU’s crisis response on the ground. He met some of the EU’s humanitarian partners in Vinnytsia, where the EU has set up a warehouse for humanitarian aid deliveries.

The new disbursement  brings total EU humanitarian aid funding in response to Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine to €348 million, of which €13 million goes for projects in neighbouring Moldova to support displaced people arriving in the country.

“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 Member 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 support Ukraine as long as it takes,” said Commissioner Lenarčič.
