Germany to send new aid for Ukraine ahead of winter

Germany is planning to transfer $57.3 million to the Energy Support Fund for Ukraine, the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine said.

The funds will be provided as part of the German-Ukrainian Energy Partnership for the purchase of energy equipment necessary for the restoration and repair of Ukrainian energy facilities.

Ukraine’s Minister of Energy Herman Haluschenko thanked Germany for the assistance, emphasizing that work continues on further expanding the energy partnership.

Earlier, Germany pledged to continue supplying weapons to Ukraine and was working on a winter military assistance package to help the country repel Russian drone and missile attacks. The package would include “everything needed for air defense,” said German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
