Romania is pledging an additional €3.2mln in humanitarian aid to Ukraine, while also reaffirming support for the reconstruction of the war-ravaged country said Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca, according to See News.
Ciuca reiterated Romania’s political, diplomatic, humanitarian and economic support for Ukraine, according to a government press release issued after an international donors conference in Warsaw.
So far, Romania has donated some €4mln to Ukraine, according to earlier information from the government. Ciuca also reaffirmed Romania’s support for the EU membership of Ukraine, Republic of Moldova and Georgia.
Almost 866,916 refugees have crossed the border from Ukraine since February 24, when Russia launched an invasion of Ukraine, the latest data from Romanian border police indicate.
In April, the Romanian government announced that it will allocate a total 45 mln lei (€9.1 mln) to partly cover private spending related to the hosting of Ukrainian refugees. Individuals hosting Ukrainian refugees in their own homes will be entitled to 50 lei a day per guest.
Also, a reimbursement scheme for commercial entities was proposed in March, with the government allocating 100 lei a day for hotels or other forms of professional hospitality hosting refugees.
