"We have already invested EUR 235 million that came directly from Austria to Ukraine, in humanitarian aid, in addition to the funds that we co-finance as Austria when the European Union provides funds to Ukraine. We cooperate in many areas, especially when it comes to helping the wounded, when it comes to rehabilitation, especially for those with amputations, as well as for women and children. Austria is also a leader in cooperation with Ukraine to alleviate the suffering of civilians," the head of the Austrian government said.
