For Immediate Release

The United States, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), provided $1.7 billion to the government of Ukraine, in alignment with President Biden’s commitment to President Zelenskyy that the United States intends to provide the Ukrainian government with direct budgetary aid. This contribution was made possible with generous bipartisan support from Congress.

The additional resources provided by the United States, through the World Bank in coordination with the U.S. Department of Treasury, will alleviate the acute budget deficit caused by the Kremlin’s full-scale invasion and ensure the Ukrainian government can continue operating and responding to critical needs, including delivery of essential services such as healthcare by paying the salaries of healthcare workers. 

To date, USAID has provided $4 billion in direct budgetary support to the Government of Ukraine. These resources have helped the Ukrainian government continue carrying out core functions – for example, keeping gas and electricity flowing to hospitals, schools, and other critical infrastructure, supporting the provision of humanitarian supplies to citizens, and continuing to pay the salaries of civil servants and teachers.
