EU countries allocate EUR 50 million to Ukraine

Ukraine's European partners continue to provide the country with humanitarian assistance under Ukrainian and international law.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yevhen Perebyinis said this at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

"Since the beginning of the year the EU has allocated nearly EUR 50 million for humanitarian purposes as part of the projects of the United Nations and the International Red Cross," he said.

According to him, today it is planned to submit the revised UN Humanitarian Response Plan, which envisages an increase in humanitarian aid to the eastern regions of Ukraine from $189 million to $316 million.

"We are grateful to all those concerned for their help. The Foreign Ministry, in its turn, will continue to work on the coordination of relevant activities with our partners abroad," Ukrainian diplomat said.
