Qatar to Provide $100 Million in Humanitarian Aid to Ukraine

Prime Minister confirmed Ukrainian Dennis Schmihal announced today, Friday, that Qatar will provide his country with humanitarian aid worth $100 million.

The Qatari prime minister, who also serves as foreign minister, said he was scheduled to meet President Volodymyr Zelensky later Friday.

“These funds will be directed to reconstruction in the health and education sectors, demining for humanitarian purposes, and other important social and humanitarian projects,” Shmihal said in a joint press statement.

He added that they discussed a formula for peace in Ukraine, which is a ten-point plan calling for nuclear security, energy and food security, restoring borders, among other points.

Shmyhal thanked Qatar for its willingness to mediate efforts to return thousands of Ukrainian children who have been transferred to Russia since the invasion.

Moscow says it wants to protect orphans and children left behind in the conflict zone. But Ukraine says many of them were deported illegally, and the United States says thousands of children have been forcibly taken from their homes.
