U.S .Announces Another $10 Billion Ukraine Aid Package As War Enters 2nd Year
The Biden Administration on Friday said it will be providing Ukraine with another $10 billion in assistance, including budgetary support for the government in Kyiv and help for Ukrainians suffering from the effects of Russian attacks on energy infrastructure, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the decision in a statement. "These funds are crucial to Ukraine as it defends itself against Russia and ensures the Ukrainian government can continue to meet the critical needs of its citizens, including healthcare, education, and emergency services," he noted.
As Russia continues its relentless attacks on Ukrainian civilian and critical energy infrastructure, the Biden Administration is "also working with Congress to provide additional energy assistance to Ukraine, a $250 million contribution that will enable us to address immediate needs, including critical power grid equipment,” Blinken added. “These funds will help keep schools open, power generators for hospitals running, and keep homes and shelters across Ukraine warm.”
Blinken also asserted that continued U.S. assistance has "helped rally" other countries — including Canada, Japan, the UK and those in the European Commission — to provide economic assistance.
Separately, early on Friday the U.S. also authorized $2 billion in security aid to Ukraine, and ramped up sanctions and tariffs on Moscow as it tries to bolster Kyiv’s war effort.
