By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The United States will send an additional $5.5 billion in aid to Ukraine, Reuters report.
The aid, $4.5 billion in budgetary support, and $1 billion in military assistance are destined to assist Ukraine in light of Russia’s invasion.
The budgetary grant will fund urgent government needs including payments for pensions, social welfare, and healthcare costs.
The $1 billion in military support will include armored medical transports and munitions for U.S.-supplied HIMARS long-range rocket launchers.
The U.S. has since contributed over $18 billion to Ukraine in 2022, US AID reports.
“This economic assistance is critical in supporting the Ukrainian people as they defend their democracy against Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression,” U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement.
