$7.8 billion will be allocated for defense needs, and $4.5 billion for direct budgetary support to Ukraine.
The Senate of the United States of America (Upper House of Congress) supported the allocation of 12.4 billion dollars of financial assistance to Ukraine.
This was announced by the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak in Telegram.
“The US Senate voted to provide Ukraine with a $12.4 billion bailout package,” he wrote.
“It is assumed that $7.8 billion will be allocated for defense needs, and $4.5 billion for direct budgetary support to Ukraine,” Yermak stressed.
US Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham said the additional aid for Ukraine, provided by the $12 billion bill for Ukraine, also contains funding that “will help Ukrainians get through the rest of the year, keep the lights on and pay the bills.”
