US provides about $23B in budget assistance to Ukraine since start of hostilities

Washington has provided Kyiv with about $23 billion in budget assistance since the end of February 2022, Minister of Finance of Ukraine Serhiy Marchenko said,  reported from TASS.

"Since February 24, 2022, the total volume of budget assistance from the United States is about $23 billion. The funds raised have made a significant contribution to the stability of the financial system of our country,” the press service of the Ministry of Finance quotes him as saying.

At a meeting in Washington with US Treasury Undersecretary for International Affairs Jay Shambaugh, Marchenko also said that it is "critically important” for Ukraine to maintain assistance from the United States.

"We expect that the United States Congress will make an appropriate decision as soon as possible to approve the assistance package for Ukraine for 2024,” he added.

At the same time, Marchenko, in a conversation with US Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economics Daleep Singh, who oversees international economic issues, said that in 2024 Kyiv needs $37.2 billion in external financing, of which $10.2 billion has already been received.
