Ukraine will receive a $1.7 billion grant from the Single Donor Trust Fund created by the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the International Development Association, and USAID, Ukrainian Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said on July 9.

The draft of the agreement was approved on July 9 at a government meeting.

“This is the result of agreements reached by development partners because of the large-scale aggression unleashed by Russia against Ukraine,” Shmyhal said.

The grant will be given on non-repayable basis to the state budget of Ukraine from USAID, with the support of the IBRD and IDA.
