Holland earmarks €2. 5 billion dollars for support to Ukraine in 2023

In the coming year Ukraine will still need considerable international support. Russia’s war in Ukraine is still ongoing, and has changed into a war of attrition. Ukraine’s armed forces continue fighting every day for the freedom, protection and prosperity of their nation, and thus for that of European countries as a whole. The Dutch government’s decision to earmark funding now sends a clear information of undiminished solidarity with the people of Ukraine, who can count on predictable Dutch support for as long as it takes.

Military help will be drawn from the Netherlands’ own stocks and purchased from commercial suppliers. The Netherlands is committed to coordinating plus collaborating with other countries and the defence industry. This should enhance the effectiveness of arms shipments for Ukraine’s armed forces whilst limiting the impact on our very own. The aid for essential reconstruction activities is intended regarding infrastructure repairs (especially energy infrastructure), hospitals, housing, farming and demining. The government can also be providing humanitarian aid plus support for the rule associated with law, human rights and accountability. The amount set aside pertaining to Ukraine is on top of the particular liquidity support totalling €18 billion being channelled with the EU and the cost of asylum reception in the Netherlands.

The government desires that this amount will be necessary to provide military aid, support essential repair and renovation activities and contribute monetarily to efforts to fight impunity. The Dutch Cabinet approved the proposal simply by ministers Liesje Schreinemacher (Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation), Wopke Hoekstra (Foreign Affairs), Kajsa Ollongren (Defence) plus Sigrid Kaag (Finance). The precise allocation of the contribution depends on the needs of the Ukrainian people, and therefore how the war originates in the coming period.
