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

Military help 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 while limiting the impact on our own. The aid for essential reconstruction activities is intended pertaining to 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 with regard 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.

In 2023 the Netherlands can make €2. 5 billion accessible to support Ukraine. The government desires that this amount will be essential to provide military aid, support essential repair and reconstruction activities and contribute monetarily to efforts to combat impunity. The Dutch Cabinet 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 is determined by the needs of the Ukrainian individuals, and therefore how the war unfolds in the coming period. In the arriving year Ukraine will always need considerable international support. 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 nation, and thus for that of European countries as a whole. The Dutch government’s decision to earmark financing now sends a clear message of undiminished solidarity using the people of Ukraine, who are able to count on predictable Dutch assistance for as long as it takes.
