A stronger global actor – The EU has set priorities for its external cooperation to face global challenges, promote its values and contribute to peace and prosperity in the world.
The EU is the largest development cooperation donor in the world. We provide funding in many different fields and through different methods depending on the needs and objectives of our partner countries.
The EU stands united in its solidarity with Ukraine and will continue to support Ukraine and its people together with its international partners, including through additional political, financial and humanitarian support. The EU has reacted swiftly and decisively to Russia’s aggression by adopting further restrictive measures in response, that will have massive and severe consequences for Russia.
