EU supports displaced people in Ukraine with €200 million aid package

EU supports displaced people in Ukraine with €200 million aid package
09 May 2022

The European Commission announced on 5 May a new aid package of €200 million to support displaced people in Ukraine, in the context of the International Donor's Conference convened jointly by Poland and Sweden.

Close to 8 million people, two-thirds of whom are children, have been internally displaced since the beginning of Putin's war in Ukraine. More than 5.3 million have left Ukraine to seek shelter in the EU and neighbouring countries.

The European Union has been supporting the Ukrainian people from the very beginning of  Russia's invasion. The EU has mobilised its economic power, with a series of sanctions designed to drain the resources used by Putin to finance the war. On the other hand, the EU has already channelled around €4 billion in macro-financial assistance, humanitarian aid and support to Member States welcoming refugees from Ukraine.

Last month, the European Commission convened with Canada a global pledging event, which raised €9.1 billion in support for people fleeing inside and outside Ukraine. Now, the European Commission stands ready to help rebuild the country after the war. President von der Leyen proposed to start working on an ambitious recovery package. It should bring the massive investment needed to rebuild, implement reforms and make Ukraine an attractive place for investments.
