On 28 March 2022, Agence Française de Développement (French Development Agency, AFD) and Ukraine signed a EUR 300 million credit facility agreement providing for a loan for the account of the French State and at the demand of the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Recovery. This credit facility aims at supporting Ukraine in addressing its essential public services needs and restoring key macroeconomic balances in the context of major humanitarian and economic crises.

We are grateful for the support France is providing to our country in the times of a full-scale invasion by Russia.”
