Ukraine has received 500 million euros ($568 million) in assistance from the European Commission, President Petro Poroshenko said in a statement on Facebook.

The EU, the United States and the International Monetary Fund have supported Ukraine's economy since the annexation of Crimea in 2014.

Poroshenko said the disbursal of 500 million euros was a "very important signal of the unwavering assistance of the European Union against the recent challenges from the Russian aggressor."
