European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides during his visit to Ukraine said about aid package worth €15 million, as reported by the press service of the EU Delegation in Ukraine.
"The aid package worth €15 million is very necessary in terms of humanitarian disaster in Ukraine. Estimated 5 million people need support”, - said Christos Stylianides.
"This extra funding will give a significant boost to our on-going aid operations, reaching the most vulnerable people through the provision of food, hygiene kits, blankets, health care, clean water, shelter and other lifesaving assistance, both in government and non-government-held areas," - added Commissioner.
As the OCSE SMM reported before the humanitarian situation in Donbass remains complicated, particularly, humanitarian aid not always reaches the territories, controlled by the terrorists.
