Today, the Commission is announcing an initial €83 million in humanitarian aid to support the people affected by Russia's war against Ukraine in 2024, APA reports citing the website of the Commission.

Of the €83 million humanitarian funding:

  • €75 million is allocated for humanitarian projects in Ukraine to provide emergency aid including access to basic needs such as shelter, protection services, clean water, education and healthcare. At the heart of EU's humanitarian strategy in Ukraine today is protecting people affected by the war, especially those living close to the frontline areas.
  • €8 million is allocated for humanitarian projects in Moldova providing targeted assistance to the most vulnerable, including humanitarian cash assistance for basic needs, protection, and health.

Including the new funding announced today, the European Commission has allocated in total €926 million for humanitarian aid programmes to help civilians affected by the war in Ukraine since Russia's invasion in February 2022.

Of this funding, €860 million has been allocated for humanitarian programmes within Ukraine and €66 million to support refugees who have fled to neighbouring Moldova.
