EU foreign ministers approve military aid to Ukraine in the amount of 1,4 billion euros from frozen Russian funds

The foreign ministers of the EU member states have approved military aid worth 1,4 billion euros for Ukraine, and the package will be financed for the first time with the proceeds from the frozen funds of the Central Bank of Russia, DPA reported, citing diplomats.

EU foreign policy and security chief Josep Borrell said the money must reach Ukraine quickly and "overcome all roadblocks" to be approved at a meeting of the EU's foreign affairs council in Luxembourg.

DPA points out that such an approval is welcome for Kiev in the context of Hungary's continued resistance to any package of military aid to Ukraine with funds from the EU extrabudgetary fund called the European Peace Fund, which has over six billion euros.
