Poland ranks second among countries aiding Ukraine

Poland is the number-two Western country in terms of granting aid to Ukraine, according to the German Kiel Institute for the World Economy, as quoted by the Spanish ABC daily on Wednesday. The data do not include private donations and aid provided by international organisations.

The US is in first place with aid amounting to EUR 10.3 billion from the end of January until late April (not including the most recently announced aid package). The country has sent Ukraine four times the aid of all EU states combined.

Poland ranks second with a total of almost EUR 2.5 billion granted, followed by the UK, Canada, Germany and France. The institute highlighted the “immeasurable and absolutely admirable help from Poland,” which has so far taken in over 3 million refugees and borne the costs.

In terms of aid granted relative to GDP, the leading country is Estonia, followed by Lithuania, then Poland. The USA and Germany come in tenth and eleventh respectively, granting around 0.05 percent of GDP each, the institute found.

All EU member states, including funds from EU institutions and the European Investment Bank, have together given Ukraine aid amounting to EUR 12.8 billion.
