Answer given by High Representative/Vice-President Borrell i Fontelles
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001232/2022

1. In response to the Ukrainian urgent needs , on 13 April 2022 the Council adopted an additional assistance measure under the European Peace Facility (EPF)(1), through which the EU will add EUR 500 million to the resources already mobilised under the EPF for Ukraine, thereby tripling the initial budget to EUR 1.5 billion. EUR 1.35 billion out of this package is to ensure the supply of lethal equipment. Implementation is ongoing at fast pace. EU Member States are responsible for the delivery of equipment. Since the beginning of EU military assistance to Ukraine, they have been focused on providing support in a swift and coordinated manner.

2. The EU Military Staff has set up a mechanism to coordinate the requests of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the support being provided by EU Member States. Military equipment offered by EU Member States are matched against a list of priorities communicated and regularly updated by the Ukrainian side.

3. The Strategic Compass on security and defence highlights the need to substantially enhance the military mobility of EU armed forces within and beyond the Union. The importance of this initiative has become even more evident in light of Russia’s military aggression against Ukraine. The Commission and the High Representative/Vice-President will present a revised Action Plan on Military Mobility by the end of 2022 with new actions in areas such as digitalisation, increasing cyber resilience of transport infrastructure, as well as air and sealift capacities. Furthermore, the Commission took immediate actions to accelerate the implementation of the dual-use transport infrastructure projects in the framework of the Connecting Europe Facility.

The reply reflects the situation as of 19 of April 2022.
