The German government intends to provide Ukraine, which is under attack from Russia, with immediate aid amounting to millions of euros to support its reconstruction efforts. Development Minister Svenja Schulze said in the badly damaged Kyiv suburb of Borodyanka that this could not wait until the war was over, adding that 185 million euros had already been approved for emergency aid measures, especially for housing and power lines. “Ukrainians simply need water and electricity. Those who have fled within Ukraine need a roof over their heads, children need to be able to go back to school, and all of this requires support,” Schulze said.
