The White House Requested $13.7 Bln for Ukraine

$11.7 billion in security and economic support and $2 billion in war relief

On September 2, the White House portal published a message on critical issues for US funding: support for Ukraine, COVID-19, monkeypox, and disaster recovery. It is in this sequence: Ukraine was listed in the first place.

"First, president Biden has been clear that the United States is committed to continuing to support the people of Ukraine as they defend their sovereignty. To deliver on that commitment and meet immediate needs, we are requesting $11.7 billion for security and economic assistance for the first quarter of FY 2023, as well as $2 billion to help address the impacts Putin's war has had on domestic energy supply and reduce energy costs in the future," the White House.

According to Shalanda Young, the director of the Office of management and budget of the USA, today, about a third of the direct support that Congress has provided to Ukraine has already been paid or approved by the president. By the end of this fiscal year, the United States will provide even more support to our country.

"We have rallied the world to support the people of Ukraine as they defend their democracy and we cannot allow that support to Ukraine to run dry. The people of Ukraine have inspired the world, and the Administration remains committed to supporting the Ukrainian people as they continue to stand resolute and display extraordinary courage in the face of Russia's full-scale invasion," the White House.

As of today, Ukraine has eliminated 49.050 invaders (who dared to come to our land and kill our people) and began to return Crimea. In many ways, this was made possible thanks to international support. Ukraine is fighting for peace in the world.
