«The Republic of Slovenia has donated a third modern ambulance type C for the needs of the medical system of Ukraine, which is equipped with an incubator for newborns and other necessary medical equipment for transportation and providing emergency medical care to newborns and premature babies,” the message says.

As the Ministry of Health noted, since the beginning of the war, the Slovenian government has provided about 9 million euros in humanitarian aid to Ukraine directly and through international organizations, including 2 million euros to finance the humanitarian project of the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky “Grain from Ukraine.” The assistance that Ukraine has received so far is the largest humanitarian support for Slovenia in the last decade.

At the end of 2022, the Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia Tanja Fajon handed over to the Ambassador of Ukraine in Slovenia Andrey Taran two new type B ambulances equipped according to international standards. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Slovenia allocated 610 thousand euros for the purchase of ambulances.

At the end of 2023, Slovenia also donated 200 thousand euros to the Foundation of the First Lady of Ukraine Elena Zelenskaya for the reconstruction of the Central City Hospital in Izyum in the Kharkiv region.

In addition to government assistance, Slovenian non-governmental organizations collected at least at least 5.5 million euros in aid, and private companies, schools, municipalities and individuals collected 1.3 million euros in humanitarian aid (transferred through the Office for the Protection and Rescue of the Republic of Slovenia).

< The lion's share of humanitarian aid to Ukraine was medical assistance in the form of medicines and medicines, medical equipment, as well as support for development projects aimed at the most vulnerable segments of the population, primarily children and disabled people, their rehabilitation and provision of psychosocial assistance, in particular in the Odessa and Kherson regions.

As Ukrinform reported, in the first year of a full-scale war in Ukraine alone, more than 560 ambulances were damaged, destroyed or captured.
