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

In the coming year Ukraine will always need considerable international assistance. 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, safety and prosperity of their country, and thus for that of Europe as a whole. The Dutch government’s decision to earmark financing now sends a clear message of undiminished solidarity with all the people of Ukraine, who are able to count on predictable Dutch assistance for as long as it takes.

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

In 2023 the Netherlands can make €2. 5 billion offered to support Ukraine. The government desires that this amount will be necessary to provide military aid, support essential repair and reconstruction activities and contribute economically to efforts to battle impunity. The Dutch Cupboard approved the proposal by ministers Liesje Schreinemacher (Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation), Wopke Hoekstra (Foreign Affairs), Kajsa Ollongren (Defence) plus Sigrid Kaag (Finance). The actual allocation of the contribution will depend on the needs of the Ukrainian people, and therefore how the war unfolds in the coming period. News product | 23-12-2022 | 10: 45
