The European Union, its Member States and Europeans across the continent are mobilised in support of people fleeing the war in Ukraine. Europe will be there for them in the weeks and months to come. We are working on all fronts to support Ukraine with assistance, humanitarian aid and civil protection. We have activated the temporary protection mechanism to provide people fleeing Ukraine with a secure status and access to schools, medical care and work in the EU. And we stand ready to channel more assistance and support both to people who left Ukraine to seek protection in the EU and those who stayed in Ukraine.
