Estonia to allocate 575,000 euros for humanitarian aid operations in eastern Ukraine

The Estonian Foreign Ministry will allocate €575,000 to provide shelter and basic necessities to the residents of eastern Ukraine, Evropeyskaya Pravda reported.

According to a representative of the Estonian Foreign Minister, “With the arrival of winter… the humanitarian needs are growing: there are not enough blankets, warm clothing, heating devices, there remains insufficient medical care and utilities, as well as access to organizations of humanitarian assistance for the civilian population in eastern Ukraine."

€100,000 will be given to the Red Cross, €200,000 to the UN High Commission for Refugees, another €200,000 will be sent to UNICEF, and €75,000 to the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
