“Ukraine has requested support from Finland, particularly to meet the immediate and longer-term needs related to education, the environment and radiation safety. Finland will provide Ukraine with EUR 29 million in humanitarian assistance and development cooperation support,” noted the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.

Finland will provide Ukraine with 15 million euros for humanitarian aid and 14 million euros for development cooperation to alleviate human suffering and help Ukraine during wartime.

“EUR 5 million of Finland’s humanitarian assistance will be delivered through Ukraine Humanitarian Fund of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which directly supports food security, health services and emergency accommodation, and the work of local civil society organisations. EUR 5.4 million will be delivered through two other important partners for Finland in Ukraine, the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC),” added the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.

14 million euros have been allocated for additional support of the World Bank’s Public Expenditures for Administrative Capacity Endurance (PEACE) Project, which provides Ukraine with funds to pay teachers’ salaries.

“The EUR 29 million delivered now is part of the additional financing of EUR 70 million which the Government allocated to help Ukraine in 2022. In addition to this, EUR 37 million has been reserved for 2023 for supporting Ukraine through development cooperation. This will make Ukraine Finland’s biggest partner nation in development cooperation,” concluded the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
