The decision was made during the visit of European Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christos Stylianides to Ukraine on March 16-18, an Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reports.
"The EU remains committed to support for the Ukrainians. Ukraine should remain a priority on the agenda. We have announced new support for the people affected by the conflict in eastern Ukraine," the Commissioner said.
He stressed that the humanitarian assistance should be provided to the most vulnerable categories of residents quickly, safely and impartially.
