Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Parliament Approves EUR 3.6 Billion Assistance to Ukraine

Bulgaria's National Assembly has ratified an agreement with the European Commission for the provision of EUR 3.6 billion in micro-financial aid to Ukraine, marking the second stage of planned assistance. The ratification passed with 116 MPs in favor, while 48 voted against, and 6 abstained. The agreement involves Bulgaria offering guarantees amounting to EUR 16,654,646.
