Before this meeting, the Ukrainian Prime Minister also thanked the rest of the international community for the support they have been offering since the first Russian tanks crossed the border on February 24.

“Ukraine has already received 4.5 billion euros from our international partners and friends. Over the past week, 500 million dollars came from the World Bank,” Shmigal stressed.
