The United States will give Ukraine 4.5 billion dollars in aid so that the country can allocate these funds to budgetary needs such as hospital spending, salaries of public employees and teachers and social assistance for the most vulnerable.

In a statement, the Secretary of the Treasury, Janet Yellen, announced this new batch that will be sent in the coming weeks and that “combined” with military aid is intended to be an important tool in the “resistance” of Ukraine to the invasion by Russia.

With this new refund, US aid to Ukraine rises to $13 billion, according to the statement.

“We encourage other donors to speed up their assistance to Ukraine,” Yellen said in this message in which she recalled that the US Treasury Department will continue to help the country with other tools such as the “historic sanctions” against Russia that are “weakening the machinery of war” of President Vladimir Putin.
