Helping Ukraine

Yesterday the UK government announced that the first tranche of funding to the Ukraine Energy Support Fund will be made to the Ukraine, helping to keep critical national infrastructure in Ukraine up and running.

  • More than 40 per cent of Ukraine’s energy infrastructure – including power stations and pipelines – has been damaged or destroyed by Russian attacks, leaving millions of Ukrainians without electricity.
  • That is why yesterday Britain signed an agreement with Ukraine to transfer £5 million to the Ukraine Energy Support Fund – helping to repair critical national infrastructure and building on the £7 million investment we have already made to supply 850 emergency generators.  
  • The UK has made the largest donation to date to this Fund and we urge all our international partners to step up their support and show Putin that his attempts to destroy Ukraine will be met with fierce resistance.
