Ukraine will get the first €4.5 billion tranche under the Ukraine Facility program in March, followed by another €1.5 billion in April, announced Valdis Dombrovskis, European Commission Executive Vice-President.

“We are finalizing the mechanism to support Ukraine, called the Ukraine Facility. The first tranche will arrive in March, with another shortly after,” Dombrovskis said during a joint briefing with Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal in Kyiv.
