Macron: Europe ready with $53 billion aid package for Ukraine if US falters:
As US aid hangs in limbo, European nations might need to step in with a hefty $53 billion in aid for Ukraine approved under Ukraine Facility program, French President Emmanuel Macron said at the inauguration of a gunpowder plant on April 11.
If the US does not provide funding, Europe will have to mobilize and build new financial instruments, Macron said.
He pointed out that the European Union would then be obligated to secure additional funds, providing Ukraine with over $54 billion under the Ukraine Facility program.
"We can't turn our backs on Ukraine," the French president declared, stressing the geopolitical and security implications for Europe. "Ukraine's proximity, just 932 miles away, ties directly to our own security and the very existence of our geopolitical landscape."
European Council unanimously approved a new financial assistance package for Ukraine for 2024-2027 on Feb. 1, amounted $53 billion, of which $41.6 billion will be used to ensure macro-financial stability. --->READ MORE HERE
