The conference, aimed at helping Ukraine deal with the economic and humanitarian fallout of Russia’s invasion, is hosted by Poland and Sweden, in cooperation with the Presidents of the European Commission and the European Council.

“The humanitarian needs of the population and the economic situation of the country call for a new effort by the international community which meets the needs linked to the destruction of civilian infrastructure”, Macron said.
