Ukraine Receives €1.9 Billion Tranche from the EU

Ukraine’s state budget has been bolstered with a €1.9 billion tranche from the European Union under the Ukraine Facility program

This funding is part of the EU's ongoing commitment to support Ukraine's economic stability and war efforts.

Key Highlights

  • Significant Contribution: The European Union has been a pivotal partner for Ukraine, providing substantial financial aid since the onset of the full-scale war with Russia. This latest tranche brings the total direct budget aid from the EU to nearly €35 billion.

  • Economic Stability: According to Serhiy Marchenko, Ukraine's Minister of Finance, this funding has been crucial in maintaining macroeconomic stability and financing priority budget needs.

Ukraine Facility Program

The Ukraine Facility program, approved by the European Parliament in February 2024, aims to provide €50 billion in support to Ukraine from 2024 to 2027. The program includes several key elements:

  • Previous Disbursements: Earlier this year, Ukraine received €6 billion in financial support in March and April for meeting five specific indicators for the first quarter.

  • Upcoming Targets: For the second quarter, Ukraine must fulfill nine indicators to receive an additional €4.1 billion in September 2024.

  • Long-term Goals: The program outlines 151 indicators across 69 reform directions, with implementation planned through 2027.

International Financial Support

As of June 20, 2024, Ukraine has received approximately $11.8 billion in international financing. The European Union has provided the largest share, totaling $6.5 billion. Additionally, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is expected to disburse $2.2 billion by the end of June.


The €1.9 billion tranche from the European Union is a vital part of Ukraine's ongoing efforts to maintain economic stability and finance essential government functions amid the ongoing conflict. The Ukraine Facility program and other international financial support mechanisms are crucial for Ukraine's resilience and recovery.
