European Commission is quadrupling its aid to the Belarusian population

Today at a speech made in an international Donor's Conference on Belarus held in Warsaw, European Commissioner Štefan Füle announced that the European Commission intends to increase its funds and support for civil society fourfold, up to € 15,6 Million. Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle commented "As a clear demonstration of our unequivocal support to civil society in these difficult times, we will increase our funding from the currently available €4 million to €15.6 million. With these measures, we are seeking to avoid isolating the Belarusian population. I believe we have an important responsibility in this regard."
