Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemi, Minister of State for International Cooperation, said that this aid to Ukraine stems from the UAE’s belief in the importance of human solidarity, especially in conflict situations, and is part of the country’s continuous efforts to mitigate the humanitarian repercussions of the Ukrainian crisis.
