On Thursday, while in Kyiv, European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič announced the allocation of an additional 55 million euros for humanitarian aid to Ukraine amid Russia's full-scale invasion.
This was reported by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations.
According to Lenarčič, the new funding for humanitarian aid to Ukraine will be used to prepare for the next winter.
"We are increasing EU humanitarian aid to Ukraine by a further €55 million to make sure we are prepared for the additional challenges of the harsh and cold winter months," the European Commissioner announced.
Since the beginning of this year, the European Union has already allocated 145 million euros to Ukraine, bringing the total amount since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion to 685 million euros.
EU-funded humanitarian aid is provided through UN humanitarian agencies, non-governmental organizations and the International Committee of the Red Cross.
