The European Union will allocate 9 billion euros to Ukraine
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that following the summit of the EU member states, the association decided to provide financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 9 billion euros.
According to him, Kyiv does not have the funds to pay border guards, police officers, nurses and teachers, so the EU is ready to provide assistance.
In addition, in early May, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said that the European Union was ready to allocate another 200 million euros in aid to Ukraine. Western countries have promised to provide Kyiv with several packages of financial and military assistance after the start of the Russian war on February 24. After that, the EU also accelerated the process of its inclusion in its composition: the country has already received the status of a candidate for joining the association along with Moldova. At the same time, Georgia did not receive such a status.
