The list was compiled on the basis of 11 criteria, Polish state news agency PAP reported.

These included financial aid provided to Ukraine, in absolute terms and as a proportion of a country’s GDP; whether a country’s top officials visited Ukraine after the Russian invasion began; and political support for Ukraine on the international arena, among other criteria, according to PAP.

Poland gives most help

Poland topped the ranking, scoring 97 points out of a possible 100, the PAP news agency reported.

The country has provided wide-ranging assistance to Ukraine, from voting for the withdrawal of Russian troops at the United Nations, to slapping sanctions on Russia and closing its airspace to Russian planes, the Ukrainian edition of Forbes reported, as cited by PAP.     

Moreover, Poland delivered USD 3.1 billion in aid (0.46 percent of its GDP) to Ukraine and expelled 45 Russian diplomats, while its leaders, including Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and President Andrzej Duda, visited Ukraine amid the Russian invasion, the magazine said

These factors make Poland the biggest provider of help to Ukraine, according to the Ukrainian edition of Forbes.

The United States came second with 96 points, while Estonia finished third on 95 points.

The rest of the top 10 was made up of Latvia (94 points), Canada (88), Lithuania (88), Britain (88), Slovakia (82), the Czech Republic (81), and Portugal (78), the Ukrainian edition of Forbes reported, as quoted by PAP.

Thursday is day 99 of Russia's war on Ukraine.
