ASTANA, October 27. /TASS/. Kazakhstan’s authorities are considering plans to provide Ukraine with economic and humanitarian aid, the country’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
“Currently a possibility is being considered to draft and implement a broad program of economic and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine,” the ministry said in a statement.
The plan is in line with the statement of President Nursultan Nazarbayev at the summit in the Belarusian capital Minsk between the Customs Union, Ukraine and the European Union on August 26.
The Central Asian republic is due to continue providing the crisis-hit Ukraine with practical aid to stabilize the political situation, the ministry said.
In particular, Kazakhstan has allocated $40,000 to support the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine, which focuses on the implementation of the agreements on ceasefire.
The mission, deployed in late March, has proved to be “an efficient tool of the OSCE vividly showing the ability of this organization to react to the crises rapidly and effectively,” the statement reads.
