Ukraine has received over $23 billion of international financial aid since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the country by Russia,  said in a post on the Telegram messenger service on Nov. 18

The sum includes $4.8 billion from the European Union and $8.5 billion from the United States, Shmyhal said.

He said the money was being used to fund crucial budget needs, in particular payments to state employees, pensioners, recipients of subsidies, the arms industry and supporting local communities.

"Canada made an important step regarding Ukraine,” Shmyhal added.

“The Government of Canada has already issued five-year government bonds worth CAD 500 million. Now, through the purchase of sovereign bonds for Ukraine, everyone can contribute to the strengthening of our state."
