Norway announces €84 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine
On November 13, Norway announced €84 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine. The money is to be used for education, healthcare and demining
This is stated in the press service of the country's Foreign Ministry.
"Ukrainians are now facing a new cold winter of war. Almost 18 million people are in need of humanitarian aid. Russia's brutal war of aggression against the Ukrainian people continues in full force," said Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide.
According to the diplomats, the aid is primarily aimed at those who have lost their homes and have limited access to food, clean drinking water and hygiene items. The money will also be used for education, healthcare and psychosocial support, as well as for the protection of civilians, including humanitarian demining.
It is stated that cooperation with foreign donors makes Ukraine more resilient and prevents further deterioration of the humanitarian situation.
In October, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed the current situation at the frontline and further defense cooperation between the two countries with the Norwegian Prime Minister. They paid special attention to strengthening Ukraine's air defense system to protect critical infrastructure, ports, and the grain corridor.
