Norway to provide $92 million to help Ukraine "survive another winter of war"

Norway will provide $92 million in humanitarian aid to Ukraine, CNN quoted the Norwegian government as saying.

The funding will be used to "provide the most vulnerable people, children, refugees and displaced persons" with vital assistance such as shelter, food, water, education, health care and psychological support.

"Russia's brutal military actions are causing enormous suffering to the civilian population of Ukraine," said Norwegian Foreign Minister Anniken Huetfeldt, adding that Ukrainians "need our help to survive another winter of war."

The aid will be distributed within the framework of existing programs for Ukraine established by the UN and the Red Cross.

Norway, which is one of the founding members of NATO, previously announced that it was sending F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine. It has also donated anti-aircraft missiles, demining kits, and additional funding to help ensure the country's gas and electricity supply.

Background. Earlier it became known that Norway would provide Ukraine with about 50 NM199 tracked trucks.
