Ukraine: EU delivers further energy equipment and emergency aid

The European Commission is coordinating a new aid delivery of over 1,800 tonnes in emergency assistance this month, including in the area of energy, to support Ukraine through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. 

This brings the total material aid channeled to Ukraine to 74,000 tonnes worth over €450 million, and comes on top of the €523 million in financial humanitarian assistance already provided since Russia’s illegal invasion. 

The latest support comes from Belgium, Finland, Germany, Slovakia, Luxembourg and Sweden. It  includes energy supplies, shelter items, first aid skits, protective clothing, firefighting equipment, water trucks and buses. 

“The destruction of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure is reaching a critical point. On the eve of winter, people are being cut off from electricity and heating. The key priority of our humanitarian operations today is to scale up winterisation assistance. The EU is working around the clock to help sustain the electricity supply in Ukraine,” said European Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarčič.
