EU agrees massive Ukraine aid deal in ‘message’ to Putin 


BRUSSELS: European Union leaders on Thursday overcame months of opposition from Hungarian leader Viktor Orban to agree 50 billion euros ($54 billion) of aid for Ukraine, in a move they hailed as a strong message to Russia.
The deal to keep funds flowing to Ukraine comes as doubts over support from Kyiv’s Western backers have buoyed Russian President Vladimir Putin, nearly two years into his invasion of the neighboring country.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked the European Union for the funds, which he called “long-awaited.”
