EU leaders to meet in Paris to discuss aid to Ukraine

Feb 23, 2024

French President Emmanuel Macron has invited European leaders to Paris next week to discuss proposals to help war-torn Ukraine.

This was announced on Thursday, February 22, by Polish President Andrzej Duda, Bloomberg reports.

"President Macron invited a number of European leaders in a rather ad hoc manner to talk about new proposals and solutions for Ukraine. In addition to Poland, leaders of many countries are invited,” Duda said.

As a reminder, during the summit on February 1, EU leaders approved the allocation of 50 billion euros for Ukraine under the Ukraine Facility program for 2024-2027.

Ukraine expects to receive the first payment under the program in the amount of €4.5 billion in March.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said that Ukraine would like to receive €18 billion in the first two years of the program.
