Romania has not yet allocated funds for Ukrainian refugees in 2024

Apr 2, 2024

The Romanian authorities have not yet allocated any financial assistance to Ukrainian refugees in 2024.

This was reported by the Romanian General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU), Euractiv reports.

Ukrainian refugees received some financial support in February, but these were overdue payments from the end of 2023, the IGSU said.


Regarding the expenditures for January and February 2024, IGSU said that "steps have been taken with higher authorities to allocate the necessary funds after receiving requests from local authorities".

However, IGSU stated that it could not estimate when it would receive the required amounts.

Assistance to Ukrainian refugees was also delayed last year due to budget shortfalls, leading to protests by several dozen Ukrainian refugees in front of the Ministry of Finance in November 2023.
