The European Union will provide humanitarian assistance totaling 83 million euros to support people affected by the war, with the majority of the funds allocated to Ukraine. This information was reported at the European Commission's page.

"The deliberate attacks by Russia on key energy and civilian infrastructure in Ukraine, such as hospitals, schools, and power grids, seriously hinder people's access to essential services. With each new shelling, an increasing number of Ukrainians are left homeless and in need of assistance and shelter in freezing conditions," the statement said.

It is noted that in Ukraine, 14.6 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance.

The European Commission has announced that out of the 83 million euros in humanitarian financing, 75 million euros have been allocated to humanitarian projects in Ukraine.

This includes providing emergency assistance, including access to basic needs such as shelter, protection services, clean water, education, and healthcare.

"The EU's humanitarian strategy in Ukraine today is based on protecting people affected by the war, especially those living near the front lines," the European Commission stated.

With the new funding announced today, the European Commission has allocated a total of 926 million euros to humanitarian programs to assist civilians affected by the war in Ukraine following the Russian invasion in February 2022.

Out of this funding, 860 million euros have been allocated to humanitarian programs within Ukraine, and 66 million euros have been allocated to support refugees who have arrived in neighboring Moldova.
