Aid to Ukraine drops to lowest level since January 2022

Dec 7, 2023

In August-October 2023, the amount of newly pledged aid to Ukraine from Western countries reached a historic low, down almost 90% compared to the same period in 2022.

According to Yevropeiska Pravda, this is evidenced by the results of a study conducted by the Kiel Institute for the World Economy.

According to it, in the period from August to October 2023, the total value of new aid packages amounted to €2.11 billion, which is the lowest figure since January 2022.


The most important group of active donors is Germany, Finland, Ireland, Croatia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, and Switzerland, as well as Canada and the United Kingdom.

The United States remains the largest donor of military aid with a total of €44 billion. However, Germany is quickly catching up with military commitments totaling more than €17 billion.

EU countries continue to catch up with the United States in terms of military aid pledges and are already ahead of it.

Out of the total 25 billion euros pledged for heavy weapons (January 2022 - October 2023), 43 percent goes to the United States and 47 percent to all EU countries and institutions combined.
