According to Reuters, citing a source in the German government, the package will consist of two parts and include grants that do not need to be returned, and loans.

According to the interlocutor of Reuters, Germany is in favor of a more equitable distribution of the financial burden among EU members. That is, the EU countries that have not yet provided assistance will now have to do more than those that have provided assistance, according to Berlin.
