The Netherlands has allocated €2.5 billion to support Ukraine in 2023, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Twitter.

“As long as Russia continues its war against Ukraine, NL will provide assistance to Ukraine. Military, humanitarian and diplomatic. We’re allocating €2.5 bn for this in 2023. Ukraine can rely on the Netherlands. We just confirmed this in our conversation with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy,” he wrote.

In his turn, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked Mark Rutte on Twitter for allocating EUR 2.5 billion in aid.

"I had an important conversation with Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte. I thanked for the decision to allocate €2.5 billion to help Ukraine in the fight against the aggressor," Zelenskyy noted.

The President of Ukraine emphasized that he appreciated the support of the Netherlands.

Ukraine recently received a EUR 200 million loan from the Netherlands on concessional terms through the IMF administrative account mechanism. The final repayment of the loan is made in 10 years from the date of disbursement.

As reported, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the Netherlands allocate 372 million euros to Ukrenergo for prompt repair of damage from Russian attacks.
