The European Commission will provide Ukraine with a new package of macro-financial assistance worth 9 billion euros.
“We are proposing new macro-financial assistance for Ukraine of up to EUR 9 billion in 2022,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen posted on her Twitter account.
The European Commission President added that the European Union would support Ukraine “throughout this war and when they start rebuilding.”
One day earlier, EU High Representative Josep Borrell said that the EU as a structure and its individual members provided more military support to Ukraine than anyone could imagine.
He also assured that the amount of aid would not be reduced and that the EU countries had enough resources to continue to support Ukraine on the same basis. Deliveries are continuing and expanding.
“We cannot let Ukraine run out of equipment. And we will not let this,” the diplomat stressed.
Borrell called support for Kyiv critical right now. According to him, the war is “at a turning point” as the Ukrainian troops launch a counter-offensive in the east, demonstrating success.
