The Netherlands is allocating 102 million euros to support Ukraine as part of the first aid package for 2024. This amount is part of the more than €2 billion that the Dutch government has reserved to support Ukraine next year, according to the website of the Dutch government.

A total of 102 million euros of the allocated funds was used to help Ukraine survive the winter and prepare for spring. The government notes that the ongoing war continues to harm Ukrainian society and the economy. Therefore, the needs remain as great as ever.

The new support package is aimed at meeting the most urgent needs:

€15 million for humanitarian assistance through the UN OCHA Ukraine Humanitarian Fund;

€15 million for demining of agricultural land and liberated areas, among other things;

€62 million to support the Government of Ukraine in providing basic services, restoring critical infrastructure and implementing reforms through the Special Programme for Ukraine and Moldova Recovery (SPUR), part of the World Bank's International Development Association (IDA);

€10 million in supplies for the Ukrainian electricity grid.
