    Japan declares to donate another $ 100 million for humanitarian aid for Ukraine [PHOTOS]

    Estimating the needs of refugees and Japan’s support for Ukraine were the main topics of the meeting between Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs Yoshimasa Hayashi (the Japanese Prime Minister’s special envoy for humanitarian aid). The official declaration was issued. This is a declaration to donate another $ 100 million for humanitarian aid to Ukraine and countries receiving refugees, including Poland.

    Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasized that helping refugees – providing education, health protection, psychological and social support or learning languages is an extremely costly undertaking. A crisis on such a large scale means enormous costs that no country can cover on its own.

     

    Poland has become a great humanitarian hub. Trucks with material help for the inhabitants of a war-torn country cross the Polish-Ukrainian border. On March 3rd, we delivered the largest food shipment to Ukraine – 1,500 tons in total.

     

    Since the commencement of military operations in Ukraine, more than 2.4 million people from this country have entered Poland. Aid activities are undertaken on many levels, which is noticed by representatives of international organizations, other countries or ambassadors.

     

    During the meeting, the Japanese Minister of Foreign Affairs delivered a letter from the Japanese Prime Minister addressed to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. This is a declaration of donating another $ 100 million for humanitarian aid to Ukraine and countries receiving refugees, including Poland. At the same time, Japan is ready to accept Ukrainian refugees as much as possible. As part of its activities in the G-7 Group, Japan imposed several economic sanctions on Russia and Belarus. The latest decision of the government in Tokyo was to introduce an embargo on the export of luxury cars, jewellery, and works of art to Russia. Japanese companies are also showing solidarity with war-torn Ukraine. Many of them decided to suspend their activities or exports to the Russian market.
