The EU stands united in its unwavering support of Ukraine in the face of Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified aggression and the illegal annexation of Ukrainian territory by the Russian Federation. The EU firmly condemns this violation of international law.

The EU has offered temporary protection to people fleeing the war. Since the start of Russia’s war of aggression, the EU, Member States and the European Financial Institutions, in a Team Europe approach, are making available around €59 billion in financial, humanitarian, emergency budget, and military support to Ukraine.

Together with the resources made available to help Member States cater for needs of Ukrainians fleeing the war in the EU, the overall support to Ukraine and Ukrainians amounts to over €76 billion.

As part of the commitment made during the College-to-Government meeting and the EU-Ukraine Summit, €1 billion of EU support will be mobilised for Ukraine’s fast recovery to be financed from EU budget and EIB loans.

The Commission has allocated €685 million for humanitarian aid programmes in Ukraine to be implemented by humanitarian partners on the ground including €200 million for 2023. In line with the priorities of the Ukrainian government, the EU humanitarian assistance provides shelter, multi-purpose cash support, protection, healthcare, food assistance, education in emergencies, and water and sanitation. In addition, over 93,000 tonnes of in-kind assistance with an estimated value of over €759 million has been delivered to Ukraine from EU Member States and partners via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. This includes, via the rescEU emergency stockpiles, over €97 million worth of shelter, energy, medical and specialised equipment for public health risks such as chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats for Ukraine.

The EU has also successfully coordinated over 2,400 medical evacuations of Ukrainian patients to provide them with specialised healthcare in hospitals across Europe.

EU (including Member States and Participating States) offered some 3,000 power generators to Ukraine’s national authorities via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and rescEU strategic reserves. Further 2,500 generators have been delivered via a repurposed cooperation programme focused on decentralisation. At the request of the European Commission, around €220 million have been made available to cover the immediate needs in the energy sector under the Ukraine Energy Support Fund established by the Energy Community. The EU is also delivering 35 million LED light bulbs for Ukraine.

To date, the EU has mobilised 3,000 shelter units from the rescEU shelter reserve hosted by Sweden.

€5.6 billion were mobilised under the European Peace Facility to support the delivery of military equipment to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. In addition, the EU Military Assistance Mission for Ukraine is tackling urgent and longer-term training needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. EU military support for Ukraine – provided by the European Peace Facility and the Member States individually – is around €20 billion.

The EU and its Member States will work with the International and European financial institutions, as well as international organisations and like-minded partners to continue providing relief to help Ukraine meet urgent financing needs and keep basic services going. Once peace returns, the EU and its Member States will help to rebuild a free and democratic Ukraine.


Ukraine is a priority partner of the European Union. The EU supports Ukraine to ensure a stable, prosperous and democratic future for all its citizens, and is unwavering in its support for Ukraine’s independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The signing of the Association Agreement in 2014, including the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) opened a new chapter in EU-Ukraine relations. The implementation of the Agreement means closer cooperation in the sphere of politics and security, and the gradual economic integration of Ukraine into the EU single market. The agreement also offers a roadmap for reforms in Ukraine, including the introduction of European standards and best practices, the rapprochement of Ukrainian and EU citizens, and the creation of conditions for Ukrainian companies to compete on European and global markets. The fight against corruption, reform of the judiciary, constitutional reform and electoral law reform, improvement of the business and investment climate, energy efficiency as well as public administration reform and decentralisation are among the key items on this agenda.

To help Ukraine in this, the EU and European financial institutions have attracted more than EUR 17 billion in grants and loans since 2014 to stabilise Ukraine’s economy, support comprehensive reforms and improve the lives of its citizens.

On 23 June 2022, the European Council decided to recognise the European perspective of Ukraine and decided to grant the status of candidate country to Ukraine.
