Netherlands 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 turned 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 European countries as a whole. The Dutch government’s decision to earmark funding now sends a clear information of undiminished solidarity using the people of Ukraine, who are able to 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 as well as the defence industry. This should boost the effectiveness of arms shipments for Ukraine’s armed forces whilst limiting the impact on our very own. The aid for important reconstruction activities is intended pertaining to infrastructure repairs (especially power 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 meant for Ukraine is on top of the liquidity support totalling €18 billion being channelled with the EU and the cost of refugee reception in the Netherlands.

The government desires that this amount will be necessary to provide military aid, assistance essential repair and reconstruction activities and contribute economically to efforts to battle impunity. The Dutch Cupboard 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.
