US to provide Ukraine with $4.5 billion to fund state expenses
"Today, the United States continues to maintain its unwavering commitment to Ukraine by mobilizing an additional $4.5 billion in direct budgetary support grants," said Yellen.
These funds will be disbursed in the coming weeks and will help the Ukrainian government maintain economic stability and provide basic public services, including salaries for hospital workers, civil servants, and teachers.
“Combined with our security assistance and the tremendous courage of the Ukrainian people, these funds are an important tool in Ukraine’s resistance to Putin’s unprovoked invasion,” she added.
Yellen noted that total direct U.S. budgetary support for Ukraine is at $13 billion in grants. She also called on other donors to increase their financial assistance to Kyiv.
