The EU will increase military aid to Ukraine to €3.1B.

The European Union has officially approved the allocation of another €500M tranche in security aid to Ukraine to increase the stability of the Ukraine Armed Forces, according to the EU Council. “Russia’s latest indiscriminate attacks on the Ukrainian civilian population and infrastructure are yet another proof of Russia’s complete disregard for human rights and international law. Nevertheless, the EU will continue to support Ukraine as long as necessary,” said EU High Representative Josep Borrell. From the new aid package, €490M will go to military equipment designed to deliver lethal weapons for defensive purposes, and €10M to cover costs for the transfer of equipment and consumables, such as personal protective equipment, first aid kits, and fuel.  The aid will also provide maintenance and repair of military equipment that has already been transferred to Ukraine by EU member states.
