Military aid will be drawn from the Netherlands’ own stocks and purchased from commercial suppliers. The Netherlands is committed to coordinating and collaborating with other countries and the defence industry. This should boost the effectiveness of arms shipments for Ukraine’s armed forces whilst limiting the impact on our own. The aid for important reconstruction activities is intended meant for infrastructure repairs (especially power infrastructure), hospitals, housing, farming 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 intended for Ukraine is on top of the particular liquidity support totalling €18 billion being channelled via the EU and the cost of asylum reception in the Netherlands.
In 2023 the Netherlands will make €2. 5 billion accessible to support Ukraine. The government needs that this amount will be necessary to provide military aid, assistance essential repair and renovation activities and contribute monetarily to efforts to battle 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 actual allocation of the contribution depends on the needs of the Ukrainian individuals, and therefore how the war originates in the coming period. In the arriving year Ukraine will keep need considerable international assistance. Russia’s war in Ukraine is still ongoing, and has turned into a war of attrition. Ukraine’s armed forces continue fighting every day for the freedom, protection and prosperity of their country, and thus for that of Europe as a whole. The Dutch government’s decision to earmark funding now sends a clear message of undiminished solidarity with the people of Ukraine, who can count on predictable Dutch support for as long as it takes.
