Norway will provide one billion crowns ($92 million) in humanitarian aid to Ukraine, the Norwegian government said in a statement.

The funding will be used "to provide the most vulnerable: children, refugees and displaced persons" with life-saving assistance such as housing, food, water, education, health and psychological support.

"Russia's brutal military actions are causing enormous suffering to the Ukrainian civilian population," Norwegian Foreign Minister Aniken Huitfeld said, adding that Ukrainians "need our help to survive another winter of war."

The aid will be distributed within the framework of existing programmes for Ukraine set up by the UN and the Red Cross.
