Ukraine feels the solid support of the world in the struggle for freedom and independence. Since the beginning of the full-scale war, international partners have provided our country with more than $23 billion of international monetary assistance. Of these, $4.8 billion from the European Union and $8.5 billion from the United States. The Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced during a Government meeting on November 18.
"These resources will be used to finance critically important budget expenditures. In particular, payments to state employees, pensioners, IDPs, recipients of subsidies, we support the capacity of hromadas," the Prime Minister said.
According to the Head of Government, next week Ukraine will receive another tranche of macro-financial assistance from the EU in the amount of EUR 2.5 billion. And another one for EUR 500 million - in December. In addition, Canada has made an important step to help address Ukraine's needs.
"The Government of Canada has already issued five-year government bonds worth CAD 500 million. Now, through the purchase of sovereign bonds for Ukraine, everyone can contribute to the strengthening of our state. Thus, Canadians are investing in our victory, and the Government of Canada guarantees investors the payment of interest," Denys Shmyhal noted and thanked Canadian partners for the initiative.
