ZAGREB, 1 March 2022 - Prime Minister Andrej Plenković will submit a report on the situation in Ukraine to the Croatian parliament on Wednesday.

The report comes after Russia mounted a military invasion of Ukraine on 24 February.

Croatia has expressed its strong support for Ukraine and sharply condemned the unprovoked Russian aggression.

The Croatian parliament has adopted a declaration on Ukraine, calling on Russia to immediately cease the military attack and withdraw its troops from Ukrainian territory.

The Croatian government has adopted a package of support measures for Ukraine relating to the possible acceptance of refugees, gas supply, and a ban on the use of Croatian airspace by Russian airlines and aircraft.

Croatia will support Ukraine with protective military equipment and infantry weapons, worth HRK 124 million (€16.5m) in total.

The government measures have been backed by the parliamentary majority and the opposition.
