I am proud of the efforts that both the UK Government and ordinary Britons are making to assist those suffering from Putin's barbaric war. The scenes we have witnessed from Ukraine are incredibly distressing and it is naturally causing concern back here at home.
As a result, this Government is providing a package of support in response to the Ukraine crisis. This constitutes approximately £394 million in support, with £220 million in humanitarian aid. Along with the Government-backed Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Appeal, many local and national charities and other organisations have rallied the call. When making a donation, please check for the charity's name and registration number to make sure that your donation is safe and being used effectively.
