US provides more than $374M in additional humanitarian aid for Ukraine
USAID said this in a press release, Ukrinform reports.
"President Joe Biden announced today following his meeting with President Zelensky that the United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), has provided more than $374 million in additional humanitarian assistance in response to ongoing needs caused by Putin's war against Ukraine," the agency said.
It added that this additional life-saving assistance comes at a crucial moment as continued Russian attacks on civilian housing and critical infrastructure have left many communities without access to safe shelter, food, clean water and sanitation, and other basic services during the harsh winter.
Since the start of Putin's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February, the U.S. government has provided more than $1.9 billion in humanitarian assistance to support people in Ukraine and those fleeing to neighboring countries, including more than $1.4 billion in USAID humanitarian assistance.
Ukrinform reported earlier that Ukraine had received 105 pieces of energy equipment worth more than $100,000 free of charge from USAID.
