The European Union has approved its humanitarian budget in the amount of 1.4 billion euros. This was reported by Interfax-Ukraine with reference to the Notice of the European Commission.

"As global humanitarian needs are exacerbated by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the effects of climate change, the European Commission has approved its initial annual humanitarian budget of 1.4 billion euros for 2021. This represents an increase of more than 60% compared to the initial humanitarian budget in the amount of 900 million euros, which was adopted last year," reads the message.

It is noted that 28 million euros will be used to finance projects that are aimed at overcoming the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic and climate change in Ukraine, the Western Balkans, and the Caucasus.

As we reported earlier, last September the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) reported the deplorable state of natural resources and the environment in Ukraine.

Besides that, the organization stated that no research on the possible extinction of some species of animals and plants was being conducted at that point.
