U.S. Charge d'Affaires in Ukraine, US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent says that the US government annually allocates about $ 750 million to Ukraine. Kent stated this in an interview with Radio Liberty.
“I think that we (in the USA - ed.) have a very reliable foundation of support. Every year our Congress allocates funds to support Ukraine in various industries - up to $ 750 million a year. Perhaps there are four, maximum five, other countries that receive such support from us every year. And it does not depend on who sits in the White House. Both Democrats and Republicans support Ukraine together. And I think that it does not depend on the administration, officials working with Ukraine," he said ...
Kent stressed that Ukraine's success is important not only for this country but for the entire region.
“And this is our promise and our joint work with Ukrainians. And President Joe Biden, when he was vice president, came here six times. This means that never in the history of the United States there was a president who knew better about Ukrainian affairs than President Biden, "Kent added.
As a reminder, in April, the United States of America provided additional financial support to Ukraine in the amount of $ 155 million for the development and improvement of the living standards of Ukrainians.
