Netherlands announces US$150 million in ODA will go to in-country Ukrainian refugee costs

On May 20, 2022, the Cabinet of the Netherlands released the Spring Bill; in the bill, Dutch Minister of Finances Sigrid Kaag made proposals to amend the budget. 

Kaag announced that an additional €150 million (US$162 million) will be devoted to the reception of Ukrainian refugees in the Netherlands. This additional sum will come from the 2022 Dutch ODA budget and will be reallocated from money that was originally intended for climate funding or COVAX. The detailed Spring budget was published on June 1, 2022.
