The European Union allocated another tranche of EUR 1.5 billion to Ukraine as part of the macro-financial assistance program worth a total of EUR 18 billion.

That’s according to the European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, who broke the news on Twitter.

“Today we are providing another €1.5 billion to Ukraine under our annual macro-financial assistance package. We will continue helping Ukraine resist Russia’s aggression, keep its institutions and infrastructure running, and conduct crucial reforms,” the tweet reads.
