Ukraine Crisis: Hungary pledges EUR 37 mln aid package for Ukrainians
Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Peter Szijjarto outlined a EUR 37m assistance package Hungary is offering to Ukrainians at a conference in Warsaw on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Hungary is prepared to participate in the construction of a school and a hospital in or near Kyiv, or elsewhere in the country, Szijjártó said, detailing the five-part package.
Hungary will deliver mobile homes to the west of Ukraine for people who have been displaced; it will provide scholarships to Ukrainian students who wish to continue their university studies in Hungary; it will treat wounded Ukrainian soldiers in Hungarian hospitals; and it will provide for the care of 130 children in special hospitals, he added.
He noted that Hungary has offered assistance to 670,000 refugees from Ukraine who have arrived in Hungary so far.
The donor conference in Warsaw was organized by Poland and Sweden.
