U.S. ready to send $1.5B in aid to Ukraine until war ends - media

The United States is willing to provide $1.5 billion in monthly financial assistance throughout war.

That’s according to Bloomberg, Ukrinform reports.

“The US is willing to support Ukraine’s finances with $1.5 billion a month in aid throughout the war against Russia and is pushing its European allies to commit to similar amounts,” the report reads, citing people familiar with the matter.

U.S. Congress during the approval of assistance packages to Ukraine will be insisting that the obligations be distributed between allies more fairly.

“With the EU haggling internally over the delivery of previous pledges, allies have been discussing a more regular mechanism to help keep Ukraine’s economy afloat,” the report adds.

International support is critical for financing state expenditures, including education, health care, power network, and others.

According to the draft State Budget for 2023, the government expects to receive direct financial assistance worth $38 billion.
