European Union countries will add another €2bn (£1.7bn) to a fund that has been used to pay for military support for Ukraine, two diplomats have told Reuters.

The bloc’s foreign ministers will decide to top up the European Peace Facility (EPF) at a meeting in Brussels on Monday, the diplomats added.

EU states have tapped into the fund to purchase arms and military equipment for Kyiv, but it has been mostly depleted by nearly nine months of war in Ukraine.

In November EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell called on member states to refill the pot by the end of the year.

He said the EU and its member states have provided €5.7bn (£4.9bn) worth of arms and military equipment to Ukraine so far.
