EU provides additional support to Ukraine

July 9, 2019

During the 21st EU-Ukraine Summit, which took place in Kyiv on 8 July, EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, Johannes Hahn, signed agreements with his Ukrainian government counterparts on four programmes, worth €109 million.

The new EU support package will focus on decentralisation, the fight against corruption, supporting civil society and technical cooperation for the facilitation of key reforms and the implementation of the Association Agreement and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area.

Attending the Summit, Commissioner Hahn commented: “Our new support will help Ukraine implement key reforms that will have a tangible impact on people's lives and that will improve relations with the EU. Ukraine has advanced in a number of important demanding reforms over the years, and it is important that there will not be any roll-back, in particular on issues such as the fight against corruption or decentralisation.”

Commissioner Hahn added that the EU has also stepped up its support to civil society, “which is key for better governance in Ukraine”.
