The EU wants to provide short-term financial assistance to finance the urgent needs of Ukraine. Including the restoration of critical infrastructure.
The ambassadors of the European Union countries agreed on a package of financial assistance to Ukraine. We are talking about 18 billion euros. This was reported in the representation of the Czech Republic in the EU on Twitter.
It is reported that financing can go in regular tranches in the form of loans on favorable terms. The EU ambassadors made the decision unanimously.
The EU ambassadors broadly unanimously agreed on a €18bn bailout package for Ukraine, a 15% minimum corporate tax on large corporations, the approval of Hungary's recovery and resilience plan, and a terms agreement.
< p>Note that now this proposal must be approved by the European Parliament.
“The aim is to provide short-term financial assistance, funding for Ukraine's urgent needs, rebuilding critical infrastructure and initial support for a sustainable post-war recovery to support Ukraine on its path to European integration,” the Council's website reads.
In addition, as the Czech Radio reported, the Czech Republic is going to employ several thousand refugees from Ukraine at its defense enterprises. They will be engaged in the implementation of projects for the two states.
As the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Czech Republic, Tomas Kopechny, said, for decades, specialists have been trained in Ukraine, who so far do not exist in the Czech Republic itself. Therefore, Ukrainian engineers and technicians will be able to strengthen the defense capability of the Czech Republic, as well as Ukraine and even NATO.
So, as reported, specialists from Ukraine will repair and modernize heavy military equipment.
We also recall that the Netherlands is ready to create a special court for Russia in The Hague. According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, a special tribunal is needed to consider Russia's act of aggression against Ukraine. According to him, the International Criminal Court will not be able to consider this case.
