The European Union has made a decision to provide loans worth Euro 1 billion under a new Macro-Financial Assistance programme for Ukraine.

The 2015 Minsk peace accords - brokered between the leaders of Ukraine, Russia, France and Germany - have failed to end fighting in eastern Ukraine that has killed 10,000 people and displaced hundreds of thousands more.

Mogherini's office said the trip comes "at an important moment for the implementation of crucial reforms" related to the Association Agreement strengthening ties between Ukraine and the European Union, which entered into force in September.

In March 2015, European Union leaders made a decision to link the sanctions regime to the implementation of the Minsk agreements. However, Moscow is a guarantor of the Minsk agreements, but not the side of the conflict in Ukraine, thus Russian Federation can not implement measures enshrined in the document, according to Kremlin's spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.

During her press briefings, Mogherini insisted that the EU has "no fatigue" from Ukraine and confirmed that the European bloc is to continue supporting Ukraine politically and financially.

Since 2014, the bloc has pledged 12.8 billion euros to support the reform process in Ukraine, including 2.8 billion euros through three previous MFA programs.
