A special exhibition has been opened in Brussels to attract international attention to the needs of Ukrainian children suffered as a result of Russian military aggression in eastern Ukraine.

The exhibition has been organized by the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“By this exhibition we want to note that the needs of Ukrainian children suffered from the conflict are among the main priorities of the EU,” European Commission’s department said.

The leading institutions also said that the European side over the previous two years has spent 248 million euros on the humanitarian needs of Ukrainian Donbas. Moreover, 43.3 million euro has been allocated from the European Commission’s budget, while the rest of the sum has been provided by other member states.
