Il Presidente del Consiglio, Mario Draghi, è intervenuto in videocollegamento alla High-Level International Donors’ Conference for Ukraine, che si è svolta a Varsavia.
The war in Ukraine has caused a humanitarian catastrophe.
Millions of people, mostly women and children, have left the country to seek refuge in the European Union.
Those who stay face the risk of poverty, hunger and death.
We must help Ukraine.
Italy has already allocated around 500 million euros to support Ukrainian refugees in our country.
I am pleased to announce we have just increased that amount to more than 800 million euros.
We have transferred 110 million to support the Ukrainian general budget and are planning to lend up to 200 million euros more.
We have given 26 million to international organisations, such as the Red Cross, UNICEF, and the UNHCR.
We are donating humanitarian and medical goods, including ambulances, tents, medicines.
Ukraine deserves all the support we can give.
Italy will continue to do its part.
