    Poland & UK endorse a memorandum on aid to Ukraine

    A Polish deputy foreign minister and the deputy head of the UK’s mission to Poland signed a memorandum on Thursday on support for Ukraine, under which the UK will provide GBP 10 million (EUR 11.45 million) from its Solidarity Forum Poland to aid Ukrainian refugees.

    Poland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) announced the signing on Twitter on Thursday evening. The memorandum was signed by Marcin Przydacz and Jennifer MacNaugtan. According to the MFA, the funds will be “earmarked for humanitarian aid for Ukrainian refugees.”

     

    The money will be paid into the Solidarity Fund PL, a State Treasury foundation created in 1997 at the initiative of Poland’s then president, Aleksander Kwasniewski. It was suspended in 2005 and resumed in 2011. Currently, its task is to conduct activities in the field of international developmental cooperation, specifically those commissioned by the MFA and focused on Eastern Partnership countries.
