Support for Ukraine was originally conceived as an aid package that required the unanimous consent of the 27 EU countries.

Opposing the EU as a whole to provide financial support to Ukraine and to borrow jointly for this, Hungary argued that each member state should help Ukraine according to its own means.

Hungary vetoed a financial aid package to Ukraine this week.

After Hungary did not approve, other countries redesigned the package to include member states’ guarantees instead of the EU budget.

The package in question must be approved by the European Parliament (EP) in order to enter into force.
