Ukraine: EU boosts assistance with emergency logistical hubs and rescEU aid

The European Commission will deploy further assistance in Ukraine via the rescEU medical stockpiles based in Germany, Hungary and the Netherlands.

rescEU is a component of the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, which enhance both the protection of citizens from disasters and the management of emerging risks.

The rescEU support includes ventilators, infusion pumps, patient monitors, masks and gowns, ultrasound devices and oxygen concentrators.

The European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has established civil protection logistical hubs in Poland, with others being set up in Romania and Slovakia, to distribute required aid to Ukraine as quickly as possible. These hubs will help to channel the assistance being delivered from 27 European countries via the EU’s Civil Protection Mechanism.

The EU also continues to support neighbouring countries that have already received over 1 million displaced people from Ukraine. Greece, Austria and Germany have offered masks, disinfectants and bedding, tents, clothing to Slovakia.

In addition, teams of EU civil protection experts are on their way to Moldova and Poland to assist the authorities. Assistance from the Netherlands, France and Greece was delivered to Moldova on 3 March via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, while Swedish, Danish, Finish and Croatian assistance is on the way.
