Bilateral relations between Italy and Ukraine have always been close and inspired by true friendship and deep ties between our peoples. The Foreign Minister stated this in an interview with the “Ukrainian RBC” news agency Antonio Tajani Until February 2022, Italy hosted “one of the largest Ukrainian communities in Europe”.

“To date we have provided refuge to over 170 thousand people,” said Tajani. The aid that Italy has provided to Ukraine exceeds two billion euros, of which 800 million allocated to support refugees, 330 million to budget support and 75 million for humanitarian aid, she recalled. Italy supports the rapid reconstruction of the country attacked by Russia, "combining extraordinary measures with long-term ones". “During a recent conversation of G7 foreign ministers on Ukraine's energy needs, Italy reiterated its commitment to strengthening energy sustainability ahead of the winter,” he continued.

“I want to underline the fact that Italian companies pay great attention to our support for Ukraine,” Tajani said again, recalling that on April 26th Italy hosted a “very successful” bilateral conference in Rome with the participation of thousands of companies". “In the spring, we plan to hold a forum in Kiev as an intermediate stage towards organizing a conference on the reconstruction of Ukraine in 2025,” she explained. Tajani then recalled that his country took on the patronage in the reconstruction of Odessa. “With this initiative we want to use the Italian and international experience (…) for the reconstruction and transformation of Ukrainian cities”, concluded the minister.
