NATO to Establish Joint Trust Fund for Ukrainian Needs - Office of the President of Ukraine

Thursday, 4 August 2022

NATO plans to replace six aid funds for Ukraine with one to finance the country's needs.

"There used to be up to six NATO trust funds that financed various assistance types. Some financed demining, some - training of military personnel, etc. Today, NATO plans to establish a joint trust fund to finance the relevant needs of Ukraine. By the way, humanitarian demining is very important. This work has already begun. We need appropriate specialists, equipment, and funds. NATO is ready to back us, which is significant," quotes Deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Ihor Zhovkva.

According to him, as an institution, NATO cannot provide Ukraine with lethal weapons, but it will do everything possible to supply non-lethal weapons.

"By the way, it is also no less important in times of war. We need additional fuel and lubricants, means of combating unmanned aerial vehicles, medicines, first-aid kits by NATO standard, etc.," Zhovkva noted.

As previously reported, President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, in a conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, stated the need to receive more heavy weapons from the Alliance states to repel Russian attacks and a counteroffensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
