Head of the working group on Ukraine at the Foreign Ministry of Germany Andreas Protman said this in a commentary to a Berlin-based Ukrinform correspondent.
"Of course, Germany does not forget about this conflict. Since the beginning of 2017 and up to the present moment, the Federal Republic of Germany has allocated EUR 23 million for humanitarian activities," the diplomat said.
According to Protman, the funds have been transferred to different regions of Ukraine with major share to the eastern regions, both to government-controlled and temporarily occupied areas. "We are active on both sides of the conflict line, we are trying to help and support humanitarian projects on both sides," the German Foreign Ministry official stressed.
Protman is convinced that Berlin will continue to support humanitarian activities to help Ukraine. He stressed the need to adhere to the ceasefire in the Donbas, especially in view of the approaching winter, to provide unfettered access to the region for the humanitarian organizations and to lift the economic blockade.
