Winter help to Ukraine – level 3

16-12-2022 15:00

Some 70 countries and institutions worldwide pledged more than 1.05 billion dollars in immediate aid to help Ukraine through the harsh winter.

France hosted the global meeting to discuss what they could offer to Ukraine to maintain its water, food, energy, health, and transportation needs. Russian forces continue to batter the country’s energy and other civilian infrastructure.

Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna said that over 440 million dollars will be for Ukraine’s energy sector. She added that the participation of non-Western countries such as Qatar and Cambodia showed growing support for Ukraine. The countries will channel the rest of the funds to other sector, and they will decide on how to use almost 530 million dollars.

Difficult words: sector (infrastructure or industry), pledge (to formally promise), channel (to direct or guide towards a result).
