EU mobilises emergency assistance following floods in Ukraine

Following the devastating floods in the south-west of Ukraine last week, the EU continues to mobilise emergency assistance through the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. Intensive rains resulted in the largest flooding in the south-west of Ukraine in the last 50 years, with several casualties and damage to hundreds of homes. 

Today, an airplane of the Italian government will deliver pumping equipment, personal safety material, chainsaws, power stations and tents to the affected population.
