Slovakia helps Ukraine to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic
Bratislava has offered protective facemasks, disinfectants, blankets, and other items to help Ukraine in its fight with the coronavirus pandemic. Kyiv requested such assistance via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism, and the European Union will coordinate and co-finance the delivery of the aid package to the Ukrainian territory.
Janez Lenarčič, Commissioner for Crisis Management, said: “The coronavirus pandemic must be tackled on all fronts, all over the world. I am grateful to Slovakia for helping our neighbours in Ukraine. Only together we can overcome this virus. The EU stands ready to channel further offers of assistance.”
