Following intensive discussions with Ukrainian authorities about how to offer the best possible support, Germany has signalled solidarity by providing people in need with moveable housing units, kitchens and generators, as well as with hot water tanks, water and diesel tanks, hygiene kits, camp beds, medical equipment and other consumer products.

These goods are now being transported to Kyiv, where they will be complemented by household items and devices bought locally.

The aid transport will then head to Kharkiv, Sloviansk, Mariupol, Zaporizhia and Dnipropetrovsk in Eastern Ukraine.
