“Ahead of the summit between the European Union and Ukraine, the Council today adopted assistance measures under the European Peace Facility (EPF) that provide further military assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. These consist of a seventh package worth €500 million, and a new €45 million assistance measure supporting the training efforts of the European Union Military Assistance Mission in support of Ukraine (EUMAM Ukraine),” noted the European Council.
This decision means that the EU continues to increase its support for Ukraine in its efforts to defend and protect its sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders, as well as to protect civilians. After the allocation of the 7th package, the total amount of EU military aid for Ukraine is 3.6 billion euros.
“The aim of the new assistance measure supporting the Armed Forces of Ukraine trained under EUMAM Ukraine is to provide necessary non-lethal equipment and supplies as well as services to back the training activities,” added the European Council.
