EU chief Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday proposed extra aid to Ukraine this year of up to nine billion euros ($9.5 billion) to help it "cope with the ravages of war," AFP reported.

Speaking in a broadcast statement, von der Leyen also said it was time to think about rebuilding Ukraine whenever the "war" ends, adding the EU has "a strategic interest in leading this reconstruction effort.”
