“U.S. assistance will strengthen Ukraine’s ability to counter Russian aggression. Funding will accelerate reforms to address corruption, enhance transparency and accountability, including by expanding e-government initiatives, advance institutional reforms and training necessary for European integration,” reads the Congressional Budget Justification submitted by the U.S. Department of State to the Congress for consideration.
The United States also aims to support Ukraine’s energy security through the reform of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine and increase in energy efficiency.
The budget funds are also expected to improve the business climate and enhance trade capacity, strengthen the agricultural sector, promote democratic and economic reforms.
Moreover, the U.S. Department of State seeks to support the Organization for Security Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) in Ukraine.
“Funds will also continue to support civil society, decentralization, access to unbiased information, and judicial reform,” reads the document.
As noted, the requested funds will also support efforts to combat COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and postpandemic response and preparedness.
