The European Commission announced on 21 September that it had mobilised an additional €500,000 in humanitarian aid to support people affected by the escalation of hostilities in Nagorno Karabakh.
“Fleeing the violence, thousands of people are now displaced and in need of assistance,” says a press release by the European Commission. “EU humanitarian aid will help the affected people cover their basic needs through cash assistance, while providing them also with shelter and psychosocial support.”
This emergency funding comes in addition to the €1.17 million of humanitarian aid the EU allocated to the Nagorno Karabakh crisis earlier this year.
The EU also said it was staying in close contact with its humanitarian partners on the ground and stood ready to address the growing humanitarian needs in case of further escalation.
