NATO through its 10 trust funds has allocated 40mn euros to Ukraine, says the Alliance secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg.

"NATO will continue to provide Ukraine with practical assistance. Today we have revised our comprehensive package of assistance to Ukraine. Through 10 different trust funds, NATO member countries have allocated almost 40mn euros in support of Ukraine," Stoltenberg told a joint press conference with President Petro Poroshenko on the results of the meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission Monday, 10 July.

The funds will be used in such sectors as command of management, cyber defense and medical rehabilitation, he said.

In turn, Poroshenko advocated the establishment of a new NATO trust fund to create in Ukraine a network of institutions for the psychological rehabilitation of ATO veterans and their families.

Stoltenberg also said that NATO intends to transfer satellite communication equipment to Ukraine.

"Now we are working to provide Ukraine with satellite communication equipment," he said.

Stoltenberg led a NATO delegation embracing 29 delegations of member countries and representatives of the International Secretariat and the military headquarters of the Alliance, are in Ukraine for a meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission.
