On Thursday, July 2, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk met with EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management Christ Stylianides.

During the meeting they discussed humanitarian issues facing Ukraine. Arseniy Yatsenyuk has expressed appreciation for the decision of the European Commission to maintain the Ukrainian people by giving additional 15 million Euros for the needs of IDPs.

He informs that Ukraine has already registered 1,3 million displaced persons: "This is a huge challenge for those who left their homes in some regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, and it is difficult for the Government of Ukraine in terms of providing social benefits for these citizens."

The Prime Minister of Ukraine has also noted that a few days ago he met with representatives of organizations providing humanitarian assistance - "in order to give the green light for international organizations that deliver humanitarian aid through the line of conflict."

Christ Stylianides has underlined that the EU aims at the long-term assistance to Ukraine. He has also stressed the strong support of the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine from the European Union.
