Following an outbreak of fighting in Nagorno–Karabakh, on 2 October the EU announced that it will allocate emergency humanitarian aid to the civilian population affected by the conflict on both sides of the contact line.

The initial funding of €500,000 will help EU humanitarian partners, such as the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), provide health support, medical equipment, food packages and other essential items to several thousand people.

All EU humanitarian funding is provided in line with the humanitarian principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence, and is channelled through international organisations, UN agencies and NGOs.
