EU and member states budget €21 billion of aid for Ukraine in 2024

The EU and member states have budgeted €21 billion of aid for Ukraine in 2024 as reported by European News Source.

Quote: “The European Union and the member states, collectively, […] all of us, European institutions, we have provided €28 billion of defense equipment [to Ukraine – ed.] until now. This is not projection or a promise, this is reality,” he said.

Ministers were queried at the gathering about their commitments for the year, according to Borrell.

“A compilation [offered by member states – ed.] is slated to be €21 billion being allocated for 2024 for defense aid to Ukraine,” the diplomat added.

Borrell underscored that this is a minimum, as individual member states have not yet submitted figures for their support.

“[That is] €21 billion in one year compared with €28 billion in the initial two years [of conflict – ed.],” he emphasized.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, Danish PM Mette Frederiksen, Czech Republic PM Petr Fiala, Estonian PM Kaja Kallas, and the Netherlands’ PM Mark Rutte have drafted a joint letter advocating for collaborative efforts to offer long-term assistance to Ukraine.

Olaf Scholz, the Chancellor of Germany, has once again urged European partners to provide Ukraine with additional financial and defense aid out of concern that US assistance might halt.

Earlier, Scholz stated his aim to leverage the EU summit on February 1, focusing on the mid-term review of the EU budget, to encourage partners to donate more arms to Ukraine.
