The European Union will provide a total of five million euros in humanitarian aid to people affected by the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, the EU announced.

"We must be ready to support the thousands who have decided to leave Karabakh, especially as the coming winter is likely to expose the refugees to further challenges," said European Crisis Commissioner Janez Lenarcic.

"The European Union is dramatically increasing its humanitarian aid in the region to provide immediate assistance to those in need, both in the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave and the people now displaced in Armenia," he added.

Last week, the commission announced the first tranche of aid of 500.000 euros. Brussels hopes that the financial support will help around 25.000 people in the region, by providing financial aid, shelter and food through humanitarian organizations active on the ground.
