The United States has provided over $66 billion in aid to Ukraine

Aug 7, 2023

Since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the United States has allocated more than $66 billion in total aid to Kyiv.

This was reported by the Washington Post.

According to the publication, this is more than the United States provides in the form of aid to any other country. More than $43 billion was allocated to Kyiv as military aid, which is 65% of the total amount.


Washington has provided $23.5 billion in direct weapons and equipment, $18 billion in other assistance (training, consulting, logistics, and equipment), and $1.5 billion in grants and loans to other countries to purchase weapons and equipment.

Another $20.5 billion was allocated to support Ukraine's budget, and more than $2.6 billion was allocated to support displaced persons, refugees, and other vulnerable populations in the country and abroad.

"Experts view this amount as a large-scale investment in a U.S. ally that has not been seen since at least World War II," the authors write.

This amount far exceeded the bilateral support of other US allies, including Israel ($8.6 billion), Jordan ($3.3 billion), and Egypt ($2.9 billion), which are among the largest recipients of US aid.
