The Austrian federal government has promised the first payment at the beginning of December 2022, and then there is a commitment to allocate another 5 million euros.

Austria has not yet transferred the promised financial aid to Ukraine’s Energy Support Fund (the first tranche of 5 million euros was promised in December 2022). The Austrian newspaper Der Standard reported this with reference to a letter from the Director of the Energy Community and confirmation from the Ministries of the Environment and Finance of Austria, which are at the disposal of the editors.

The letter on behalf of Energy Community Director Artur Lorkowski to Austrian Finance Minister Magnus Brunner contained a “clear warning” to the Austrian Finance Ministry about the “urgent need” for funds to support Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. The community calls on the Austrian Ministry of Finance to prioritize the issue of Austria’s promised contribution to the Ukraine Energy Support Fund.

Background: A few months ago, the Austrian government promised Ukraine a total of ten million euros in support of energy companies – but the money has not yet arrived.

The publication recalls that we are talking about two tranches of 5 million euros each. The Austrian federal government has promised the first payment at the beginning of December 2022, and then there is a commitment to allocate another 5 million euros.

It is reported that the money should come to the Fund from the budget of the Ministry of Climate Protection, headed by the representative of the Green Party, Leonore Gewessler, but they indicate a delay on the part of the Ministry of Finance, which must agree to a tranche and led by Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) representative Magnus Brunner.

The Ministry of Finance confirmed that the agreement on the transfer of money by the Ministry of Climate Protection has not yet taken place due to “the need to agree on specific amounts” and assured that this issue will be resolved “in the next few days.”

It was previously reported that Austria supported the EU’s joint procurement of ammunition for Ukraine
