Additional Emergency Grant Aid for winterization assistance in Ukraine

February 14, 2023

On February 14, the Government of Japan decided to extend Emergency Grant Aid of approximately 550,000 US dollars as support for winterization assistance in Ukraine.

  1. The Government of Japan will implement the aid for the National Police of Ukraine (NPU) through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) with provision of reflective materials and heat packs.
  2. The large-scale blackout has continued in various areas of Ukraine caused by destruction of a large part of energy infrastructure facilities by Russia’s attacks. With severe winter continues and the lights on the streets turned off, causing increase in traffic accidents, the aid is to improve safety of pedestrians and public officers during the night, and to protect public officers working outside from the cold.
  3. The Government of Japan will continue to provide support for and stand by the people of Ukraine who are facing hardship, in collaboration with the international community, including the G7 members.
