Switzerland will provide an additional 1.5 billion Swiss francs to Ukraine by 2028, Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis said at a conference in Washington. The minister stressed that Switzerland is committed to long-term support for Ukraine.

The support will be provided within the framework of the international cooperation strategy for 2025 to 2028, the Ministry of foreign affairs said yesterday. Together with the 300 million Swiss francs (306 million euros) allocated for 2023-2024, this would bring the total amount Switzerland will provide to the country by 2028 to 1.8 billion francs (1.83 billion euros).

Bern has already separately allocated 1.03 billion francs for support to the approximately 75,000 Ukrainians who have taken refuge in Switzerland.
