Ukraine situation

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To provide Cabinet with an overview of the impacts of the current situation in Ukraine on the County Council and East Sussex more broadly, and the actions being taken by ESCC in conjunction with partner organisations.


52.1     The Cabinet considered a report by the Chief Executive.

52.2     It was RESOLVED to note the local implications of the current situation in Ukraine and approve the actions being taken in response by ESCC in conjunction with partner organisations.


52.3     Our county already has a proud record of helping people forced to flee wars but this is the largest challenge we have had to rise to. It is heartening to see individuals and communities across the county already stepping up to help. Considerable work is underway across the Council and our partner organisations to respond robustly and positively, and to mitigate the risks arising from the situation as effectively as possible. We are also taking appropriate action to identify and manage risks arising from the wider economic and security impacts of the conflict in Ukraine through our corporate risk management systems.
