Over more than three months, Ukraine's partners have provided more than $7bn in financial assistance to our country.
“Every day we work and negotiate to increase aid. For example, today we will approve nearly $800m in financial support from the Government of Canada. Our Canadian friends have previously provided nearly $400m in support, and we are grateful for these very important funds for Ukraine,” said the head of the Cabinet of Ministers.
Shmygal also added that the Cabinet meeting planned to approve a draft agreement with the European Union, which provides for the allocation of 330 million euros to Ukraine.
“These are funds to support the economy of Ukraine and our people in the face of russia's military aggression. We are grateful for such help,” he said.
He also noted that the state spends hundreds of billions of hryvnyas on social policy, education and medicine. “We are also allocating hundreds of billions of hryvnyas to defend our country. That is why we are grateful to our international partners who provide financial support to Ukraine so that the state can fully fulfil all its social and humanitarian obligations,” Shmygal said.
As stated earlier, the European Union plans to provide new macro-financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of 9bn euros. And Finland will financially support educational reform in Ukraine and help with post-war reconstruction.
