BRUSSELS, November 12. /TASS/. The European Union has provided an additional €3.3 million humanitarian aid to the population affected by the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine, the European Commission said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The EU is providing an additional €3.3 million to help the most vulnerable groups of the population affected by the ongoing conflict in Eastern Ukraine to meet their basic needs and prepare for the approaching winter,” the European Commission said.

“This increases the Commission's humanitarian funding to €11.05 million since the beginning of the crisis. This assistance will address the most acute needs through the provision of shelter, food and non-food assistance, health services and protection,” it said.

“A further €4.5 million is being provided to meet the recovery and integration needs of internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host communities as well as to promote confidence-building. Particular focus is given to supporting small-scale community development projects (schools, medical facilities),” the EC said.

The EU countries have provided over €73 million humanitarian aid to Ukraine, it said, adding that EU humanitarian experts had worked there since February 2014 to monitor the situation and ensure timely and coordinated assistance.
