The Netherlands will allocate an additional EUR 110 million to Ukraine for assistance in the winter period, Liesje Schreinemacher, the Minister of Internal Trade and Development of Cooperation of the Netherlands, wrote on Twitter on Nov. 11.
The money will go to building housing for Ukrainians, repairing water supply systems, and purchases of gas, food and electricity.
“Ukraine is preparing for a rough winter. Half of its energy supply systems are destroyed. Ukrainians will face grueling conditions in the coming months. (The Netherlands) will provide an extra EUR 110 m (EUR 180 m total) to help with energy supply and shelter this winter,” Schreinemacher said.
Part of the funds will be used to buy components to repair Ukraine’s damaged power grid. Financing will be provided through the World Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
Previously, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that the Russian invaders had seriously damaged about 40% of Ukraine's energy infrastructure.
