FINANCING AGREEMENTS WITH THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION SUSPENDED
In February 2022, the Russian Federation invaded Ukraine. Due this, the European Commission has suspended the Financing Agreements between the EC and the Russian Federation concerning the European Neighbourhood Instrument cross-border cooperation programmes.
Among other things this means that no further payments of programme funds to Russia will be made, and that project PeatStop will not be co-operating with Russian partner organisations of the project in at least foreseeable future.
The project PeatStop staff is heartbroken due to unprovoked war the Russian Federation is waging in Ukraine, and we sincerely hope that this violent matter will resolve as quickly as possible with as little losses it possibly can.
