German Minister Optimistic About G7 Aid to Ukraine

German Finance Minister Christian Lindner is confident that G7 leaders will reach an agreement on financial aid to Ukraine.


He said this Thursday at the start of a two-day meeting of finance ministers and leaders of the central banks of the rich industrial countries. Lindner said that the country would need support in the “double digits,” Lindner said.

Besides Germany, the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Italy and Japan are part of the group. The European Union is also taking part in the consultations. At that meeting, among other things, the financing of the reconstruction of Ukraine will be discussed.

Previously, stories were circulated about a support package of approximately 30 billion euros in the form of loans and subsidies. This would help Ukraine with its financial obligations until the end of this year so that the entire amount does not have to be repaid.
