All 🇪🇺 countries and 2 participating states in the Mechanism have offered support and humanitarian aid to Ukraine.

Countries keep delivering help via and the established hubs in neighbouring countries.

This is in action.

@EU_Commission Interesting. Shows which countries “promise” and which “deliver” (red outline).

➡️ Hungary, looking at you!

@EU_Commission

Oh wow, while it is very hard to gauge from this map, it seems #Netherlands might have some catching up to do.

Wouldn't be surprised if in theory we should tick more boxes, but that stuff has become stuck in the Dutch Polder Model and all kinds of new and existing commissions now bow their heads on providing 'quick, practical and far-reaching help'.

Just like how we should 'swiftly deal' with freezing oligarch assets, and gave them 2 weeks headstart, while we discussed that.

@EU_Commission I recommend using image #captions (via the 'edit' link on the image preview) before posting for #accessability.

E.g.

"Map of European countries showing Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Response per country. Types of aid are represented by icons e.g. Shelter supplies, Medicines, Fuel. And the color of the icon represents which country they are delivered to e.g. Ukraine, Moldova, Poland. Map also shows main refugee flows as numbers on the country of first reception."

Our fellow citizens with some kind of visual impairment will not be able to understand what might be inside the "No description" image #a11y

@mihira @humanetech @EU_Commission

Full Ack.
In the concrete example, it would have been 1 click (!) which is to take the image out of the image if it would be readable.
But:
I would not call myself visually impaired. Personally I would not want to read the unsharp thin and pixelated text in the concrete image.
I guess only Eurocrats want.

(Hint: Make the A0 poster multiple digital images and do that extra click to at least pretend, EU is accessible)

@sl007 @mihira @humanetech @EU_Commission basically a slap in the face of the citizens. There is today too but you cannot really read the data now go f yourself

@EU_Commission Even if it is not an EU country, we are managing to absorb the refugees and support them with the described above.
I am very happy to see that we are helping out Ukraine during war.
I would be even happier if we could do the same for other countries under war, which we often complicate entry for the refugees.
I think that could show that we are supporting humans outside the EU even when they are not blond, white and christians.

@LasseGismo @EU_Commission I assume it is a very bad place according to the catholic church fantasy, right?
