On 6 February, Josep Borrelll, the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, reported on X/Twitter that he was on a visit to Ukraine.

According to the official, it is his fourth visit to Kyiv since the outset of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

“[I’m] here to discuss with our Ukrainian friends the EU’s unwavering support to Ukraine – on [the] military side, on the financial side with the new Ukraine facility, as well as on the EU reform path,” Josep Borrelll wrote.

On 1 February, the European Union voted for the Ukraine facility, a package including €50 billion in financial assistance to Ukraine from 2024 to 2027, overcoming Hungary’s veto.

  • The aid package was originally set to be approved at an EU summit in December, but Hungary vetoed the deal.
  • On 26 January, Finnish Foreign Minister Elina Valtonen hinted at Hungary’s willingness to support the €50 billion EU aid to Ukraine, raising hopes for a solution.

  • On 29 January, the EU reportedly warned Hungary of economic isolation if it blocked €50 billion in aid to Ukraine, responding to potential obstruction with dire consequences.
