The Halitsky correspondent writes in reference to Interfax, United States officials intend to send to Ukraine about $1.5 billion a month to support the government’s work.
“While we have already allocated $1 billion for these purposes through various mechanisms, we intend to direct about $1.5 billion each month to the next generation,” he said at a symposium at Washington’s Woodrow Wilson Research Center. “
The official said the direct support of Ukrainian officials is “one of the priorities” of President Joe Biden’s administration.
He said the US should take a “medium- and long-term outlook”, and that US efforts should now be aimed at ensuring the work of the government of Ukraine.
The United States and NATO allies continue to supply Ukraine with heavy arms and ammunition. Mykhailo Podolik, an adviser to the head of the Ukrainian presidential office, said earlier that Kyiv would like to receive 300 rocket launchers from the West.
At the same time, US officials, both former and present, warn of the need to establish controls on Kyiv’s use of aid provided by the United States, writes The Wall Street Journal.
