Ireland Takes In Over 36,000 Ukrainian Refugees

Ireland takes in more than 36,000 Ukrainian refugees since Russia invaded neighbouring Ukraine at the end of February.

The BBC is reporting Ireland has given 20m euros in humanitarian support and assistance to the country.

It has also given health equipment and medical donations worth more than 4.5m euros.

Ireland’s Prime Minister is scheduled to hold meetings later today and will discuss how the country and the European Union can support Ukraine.

Ireland’s full backing for continuing sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime, for Ukraine’s path to full EU membership and the reconstruction of the country will also be discussed.
