The Dutch government promises 2.5 billion euros to Ukraine for 2024

The Dutch government has allocated 2.5 billion euros to support Ukraine in 2024, said the country's foreign minister, Hanke Bruins Slot, during a visit to Kiev on Tuesday.

Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine is entering another winter, raising concerns that Kiev's efforts to repel the Russian invasion, which began in February 2022, could fail without continued Western support.

Bruins Slot assured the Ukrainian authorities of the continued support from her country.

"My message to Minister Kuleba was the same as to all of you here. Our support for you is guaranteed", she said after a meeting with the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba.

She noted that her country opened a training center for F-16 fighter jets in Romania on Nov. 13 and that it is working with the United States, Denmark and other countries to ensure that Ukraine will be able to use as soon as fighter jets.

"Your safety is our safety," she added. The topic of the conversation between her and Kulebas was Ukraine's intention to become a member of the European Union. "Your future is with us", she underlined.

Kuleba said that, while media attention has focused on the conflict in the Middle East, "political attention" has not been removed from Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is expected to address US senators via video tonight, amid fears that Ukraine's efforts to fight Russia could fail if it does not have continued support from the West.

The Biden administration has asked Congress to approve the White House's request of nearly $106 billion to fund the wars in Ukraine, Israel and other security needs./REL
