On 10 December 2022, the Council of the European Union endorsed the European Commission's proposal to provide Ukraine with additional financial support in 2023. The new macro-financial assistance programme for Ukraine will amount to €18 billion. The loan will be disbursed to the state budget in instalments over the course of the current year. Ukraine received the first tranche of €3 billion on 17 January.
