EU's Rehn says supports potential donors' conference for Ukraine

BRUSSELS, Feb 25 (Reuters) - The EU’s top economic official said on Tuesday he supports a donors’ conference for European countries to raise funding for Ukraine.

Ukraine has said it needs $35 billion to survive 2014 and 2015.

“As the EU’s resources lie predominantly in the member states, I would also support the idea of a donors’ conference for Ukraine in order to allow for member states resources and other European countries to put together a substantial aid package for Ukraine,” EU Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn told a news conference.
