Bilateral cooperation with Ukraine contributes to the objectives of the Eastern Partnership.
Under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI), planned EU grant assistance for Ukraine may total up to €1 billion in the period 2014-2020. Ukraine may benefit from additional financial assistance granted through the multi-country ‘umbrella programme’: the incentive-based mechanism that rewards progress towards building deep and sustainable democracy by supplementary financial allocations.
The EU Country Roadmap for Engagement with Civil Society in Ukraine identifies eight long-term priorities for cooperation and coordination in this area. The priorities cover an enabling environment, policy analysis, legitimacy, the Association Agreement, conflict, accountability, human rights, economic development, and many other areas of concern to CSOs.
Ukraine also participates in regional programmes funded under the ENPI/ENI (mainly in education, transport or border assistance), in the Eastern Partnership Flagship Initiatives, in cross-border cooperation and in initiatives open to all Neighbour countries.
