The Commission has decided to make EUR 248 million available to 5 Member States that were most affected at the start of the war and are hosting large numbers of refugees to support their reception and border management systems. -a communiqué sent to România Libera.
The decision follows a global fundraising event on 9 April, entitled “Supporting Ukraine”, in which the Commission has pledged to support, with up to EUR 400 million, refugees arriving from Ukraine in the most affected Member States.
Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic will receive this emergency assistance from domestic affairs funds.
Member States can use these funds to provide immediate assistance, such as food, transport and temporary accommodation, to people fleeing Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine and to increase their capacity to manage the EU’s external borders.
