In accordance with a directive from President Sheikh Mohamed, the UAE will deliver $100 million in humanitarian help to Ukraine. According to news agency, the help would go to Ukrainian citizens who are struggling as a result of the situation. Sheikh Mohamed stated that the Emirates will keep offering financial and humanitarian support to lessen the effects of the confrontation with Russia.
The increased help, according to Reem Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, was in keeping with Sheikh Mohamed’s outlook on the value of cooperation during wartime and the UAE’s ongoing efforts to lessen the crisis’ humanitarian effects, Wam said.
In response to an urgent UN appeal and the regional refugee response plan in Ukraine, she added, the Emirates has recently supported Ukraine with comparable measures, including deploying planes with aid to support Ukrainian refugees in Poland and Moldova.
The UAE provided help to Ukrainian refugees in Bulgaria and Poland in June. Poland has taken on the worst burden of the refugee situation brought on by the Russian incursion. In response to a UN urgent plea, it declared in March that it will give $5 million in help to vulnerable populations in Ukraine.
According to the UN’s refugee agency, about eight million Ukrainians have left their country for other countries in Europe. During his discussions last week with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sheikh Mohamed emphasised the possibility of achieving a political resolution through diplomatic channels.
Sheikh Mohamed “emphasised the UAE’s stance of supporting peace and stability and asked for the continuation of serious negotiations to address the Ukrainian problem, regardless of how tough or complex it may be,” according to the official news agency Wam. “A political settlement that will result in global peace and security may be realised through participating in discourse, negotiation, and diplomatic channels,” Wam said.
