RIGA - All 27 European Union member countries have fulfilled their commitment to provide Ukraine with predictable, long-term support of EUR 50 billion, Prime Minister Evika Silina (New Unity) said on Twitter.

This will strengthen Ukraine in its fight for freedom. "Excellent news for the security of Latvia and all of Europe," said Silina.

As reported, Silina participates in a European Council meeting in Brussels today.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who maintained close ties to the Kremlin following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in December vetoed EUR 50 billion in EU aid for Ukraine. However, the EU agreed to sabotage Hungary's economy if Budapest blocked fresh aid to Ukraine at the summit, Financial Times reported.
