The Swedish government on Monday presented a new package of assistance to Ukraine for humanitarian and reconstruction needs worth 380 million Swedish kronor (32.51 million euros).
This is stated in the message of the Swedish government.
The new aid package for Ukraine will be provided through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SAID) to humanitarian organizations that help Ukrainians.
These include, among others, the Ukrainian Red Cross, which Sweden will help with the purchase of medicines, sanitary and water purification products, as well as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
In addition, Sweden will provide funding to the United Nations Development Program to restore Ukraine's energy infrastructure and purchase equipment to maintain critical electricity supplies.
The funding is provided from the 2023 international assistance program approved by the Swedish government separately from the aid package to Ukraine.
According to official data, since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Sweden has provided SEK 1.9 billion (€152.6 million) in humanitarian aid, SEK 750 million (€64.2 million) in recovery support, and SEK 316 million (€27 million) in reform support.
