The US is providing a €2,500 million special aid fund to countries taking in Ukrainian refugees

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed this Sunday that his country is “actively” considering the possibility of supplying Poland with warplanes if the Polish army decides to send some of its own to the Ukrainian armed forces.

“We are now actively considering the issue of planes that Poland can deliver to Ukraine and considering how we could make a delivery if Poland ultimately decides to deliver those planes. I can’t talk about a timeline, but I can say that we’re looking at it very, very actively,” said Blinken during his visit to Moldova.

From there, Blinken also announced this Sunday that his country would set up a €2,500 million relief fund to help Ukraine and countries hosting Ukrainian refugees.

“Our administration has asked Congress for $2.75 billion in emergency assistance, both humanitarian and humanitarian, to address the needs of vulnerable individuals and communities in Ukraine,” Blinken said during his visit to the Moldovan capital, Chisinau.

Part of this amount will also be allocated precisely “to countries like Moldova to support refugees and deal with the humanitarian crisis from outside Ukraine,” the foreign minister added.

Blinken was accompanied by Moldova’s President Maia Sandu, who said 250,000 refugees had entered the eastern European country from Ukraine since the start of the Russian invasion.

Referring to the country’s prospects of EU accession, Blinken welcomed Moldova’s European aspirations but reminded that the EU accession process depends on the country and the bloc’s members.
