The Ukrainian population depends, now more than ever, on the backbone of a functioning energy sector and infrastructure. Under the conditions of war, this backbone has become fragile and is under serious risk of breaking. Close to two million Ukrainians are already without electricity and heating. Support given to the energy sector is humanitarian by nature and strengthens the resilience of Ukraine.
Upon request by the European Commission and in agreement with the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine, the Energy Community Secretariat set up the legal framework for the Ukraine Energy Support Fund to counteract the impact of the Russian invasion. The Fund will enable governments and international financial institutions to provide emergency financial support to the Ukrainian energy sector. The Secretariat will act as fiduciary of the Fund as well as an intermediary between the donors and the Ukrainian authorities.
