Germany will give Ukraine an additional €200 million ($199.02m) to help fund aid programs for internally displaced people as a result Russia's invasion, said Development Minister Svenjaschulze to Funke Media group.

Denys Shmyhal, the Ukrainian prime minister, will be visiting Berlin today (5 September) to meet Olaf Scholz, the German Chancellor.

Schulze stated that she would speak with Shmyhal, prime minister of Ukraine, about ways to continue to support the Ukrainian government's care for the displaced.

He said: "The money is meant to help the people of Ukraine who have been displaced to continue to be in a position to provide for themselves with essentials."

According to data from the United Nations International Organization for Migration, approximately 7 million people had been forced internally in Ukraine by Russia's 24 February invasion.

A German official stated last month that the European Union was planning to create a financing package for Ukraine in the amount of around €8 billion by September. Germany would be contributing.
