“About two billion is earmarked for military support,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte told a news conference in The Hague. “The rest will go to humanitarian work, infrastructure reconstruction” and fighting violations of the law, he added. “The exact use of the contribution depends on the needs of the Ukrainians and therefore on the course of the armed conflict,” the government said in a statement quoted by the Belgian news agency.
The repair assistance is intended to restore infrastructure, including energy infrastructure, hospitals, housing, agriculture and mine clearance operations, the government said.
Dutch Defense Minister Kaisa Ollongren said last week that the Netherlands had provided almost 1 billion euros worth of military assistance to Ukraine since the start of the Russian special military operation on February 24.
