Germany Pledges €60 Million in Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has announced the provision of €60 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine

This decision underscores Germany's commitment to supporting Ukraine amid ongoing conflict and Russian aggression.

"We once again became convinced that Russian terror is aimed specifically at people, specifically at ordinary life in Ukraine, by attacking shopping centers, hardware stores, exclusively for the purpose of killing people and spreading fear and terror," Baerbock stated.

She emphasized the critical need for comprehensive support for Ukraine at this juncture.

"We want peace, and to ensure peace we need Ukraine's support in all its aspects. First, that Ukraine can protect itself, protect its people, protect life. Second, strengthening the economy with the upcoming recovery conference. And, third, further humanitarian aid in the amount of €60 million, especially for the east of Ukraine as a federal government," the minister elaborated.

Baerbock added that Germany, in collaboration with international organizations, will increase humanitarian aid to eastern Ukraine.

Germany's Support for Ukraine

Germany has been a significant supporter of Ukraine in its struggle against the Russian invasion. Berlin has delivered a wide array of military support, including Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled artillery, Gepard anti-aircraft guns, anti-tank missiles, grenade launchers, machine guns, ammunition, and armored vehicles.

Additionally, over 10,000 Ukrainian soldiers have received training in Germany on handling weapons and conducting combat operations.

Last week, Germany updated its military aid data, revealing the supply of Leopard 1 tanks and HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS).

Germany's commitment to Ukraine's defense, economic stability, and humanitarian needs remains steadfast, as demonstrated by this latest aid package and ongoing support efforts.
