The Decision of the European Parliament and the Council provides for the EU's exceptional assistance to Ukraine to help stabilize the country's financial situation, strengthen its resilience, contribute to the sustainability of its public debt and its ability to repay its financial obligations.

The common provisioning fund is being reinforcing by guarantees by member states and by specific provisioning for some financial liabilities. Lithuania's share of the overall guaranteed amount stands at 12.97 million euros.
