France will increase financial aid to Ukraine by $300 mln, Macron tells donor conference

President Emmanuel Macron announced in a video address to an international donors’ meeting in Warsaw that France will increase its overall financial contribution to Ukraine this year to $2 billion from 1.7 billion.

Poland and Sweden are hosting the summit, which is intended at assisting Ukraine in dealing with the economic and humanitarian consequences of Russia’s invasion, in collaboration with the Presidents of the European Commission and the European Council.

“The humanitarian needs of the population and the economic situation of the country call for a new effort by the international community which meets the needs linked to the destruction of civilian infrastructure”, Macron said.
