She added that the process of transferring equipment to help during the upcoming winter is already underway, in particular, generators for more than EUR 11 million, which will arrive in Ukraine soon.
Lührmann arrived in Ukraine as part of a delegation of other high-ranking European officials.

In particular, Vice-President of the European Parliament Nikola Beer, Federal Minister for the EU and Constitution at the Federal Chancellery of Austria Karoline Edtstadler, State Secretary for Europe of Croatia Andreja Metelko-Zgombić, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Education and Sport of Liechtenstein Dominique Hasler, Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry Foreign Affairs of Latvia Gunda Reire, Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania Jovita Neliupšienė, and Romanian Foreign Ministry Secretary of State for Global Affairs Daniela Gitman.

Thus, Gitman said that her country would provide EUR 300,000 UNHCR to help the Ukrainian population in winter.

Edtstadler said that Austria has provided Ukraine with the largest humanitarian aid package in history, amounting to more than EUR 92 million.

In addition, we are providing EUR 100,000 to the International Criminal Court because it is important for me, as a former criminal judge, to ensure an independent investigation of war crimes and to start gathering evidence.
