The United States appoints an overseer of funds allocated to Ukraine

Sep 23, 2023

The United States has appointed Robert Storch, Inspector General of the Department of Defense, to oversee the funds allocated to Ukraine.


This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the Pentagon's Office of Inspector General.

Storch will begin work on October 18. He will work with the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to oversee about $113 billion in aid that the United States has sent to Ukraine since the start of the full-scale invasion by Russian terrorists.

Last week, Storch created a new team in Ukraine to better monitor U.S. security assistance. One of the senior U.S. representatives has already started working in Ukraine at the end of August. Additional personnel are expected to arrive by the end of September.

According to Deutsche Welle, the U.S. Congress is currently considering a request from the White House to allocate another $24 billion to our country. Republicans, for their part, are calling on the administration of White House President Joe Biden to strengthen control over the use of the aid "to prevent corruption."
