EU leaders set for special summit on February 1

BRUSSELS — European leaders will reconvene for a special summit in Brussels on February 1, 2024 to discuss new financial aid to Ukraine, European Council President Charles Michel announced Monday.

The decision on a €50 billion aid package for Kyiv had been postponed last week because of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s opposition.

The aid package is set to be included in a revised EU budget, which means that it requires unanimous approval from the 27 leaders.

Speaking at a press conference Monday, Michel said the next summit would focus on “convincing the 27th member state [Hungary] to agree so we can have a unanimous decision on this subject.”
