"We will ensure our assistance gets to those who need it and supports a sovereign, independent, democratic, and prosperous Ukraine," the diplomat wrote.

As reported, since Russian invasion, Ukraine has received more than $6 billion in external assistance in the form of grants and loans. Ukraine needs an additional $5 billion a month to cover the current needs.
