On November 22, the Government of Japan decided to extend Emergency Grant Aid of approximately 2.57 million US dollars as support for winterization assistance in electric power sector, etc. in Ukraine.

  1. The Government of Japan will implement the aid for Ukraine through the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) with provision of generators and solar lanterns for Ukraine.
