Ukraine wants $9 billion in monthly aid

Samizdat | July 13, 2022

Kiev has nearly doubled its request for monthly aid from its Western allies, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday, citing an economic adviser to the Ukrainian president.

“For the next months, we have to receive $9 billion per month instead of $5 billion,” the publication quotes Oleg Ustenko as saying, who added that “it will be next to impossible” for Ukraine to survive without the funds. The figure of $5 billion was announced by President Volodymyr Zelensky last month, an amount still way above what Kiev’s supporters have provided so far.

The US has given Ukraine $3 billion in aid over the past two weeks to help Kiev pay public sector-employees.

The EU has also pledged to support the country financially, although the bloc has struggled to structure the aid. On Tuesday, the European Council approved a €1 billion loan to Ukraine, as part of a €9 billion long-term loan package proposed by the European Commission in May. However, media reports suggest that Germany has been blocking the wider aid package, with some EU members questioning whether the overall amount of €9 billion is too much. Concern has also been voiced that Kiev may default on its debt.

Since February, the EU has provided €2.2 billion in aid to Ukraine.

  2. Is that what NATO and the others have committed? An insanely insatiable greedy calculating huckster. But a talented pianist…

    Are they–that is, the citizens of these countries whose income is taxed to be given away by politicians? Who might very well be in on the theft. Like Hunter Biden and his “I’m a Zionist!” daddy?

  3. “The US has given Ukraine $3 billion in aid over the past two weeks to help Kiev pay public sector-employees”.
    Correction, The USA Tax Payers, have had their tax payments diverted by America’s Totally corrupted politicians, from reducing America’s National Debt, to pay for a War in Europe by an ‘American installed Stooge’ Ukrainian Politician.
    Where are the contributions from America’s Oligarchs, who regularly raise and send money to Israel EVERY year?
    This is THEFT of American workers Tax payments.

  4. It’s your kid, America. You made this little monster in 2014 and in eight years he’s grown into a terrorist. Now he needs 9 billion a year to feed himself. Is there some other agenda here I can’t see, or is The U.S. just plain stupid?

    • “or is The U.S. just plain stupid?”

      The USA Politicians are TOTALLY CORRUPTED. They spend TRILLIONS of dollars on endless wars, and consideration for the American people(millions of whom,, live on the streets these days) is zero.
      The American Government puts Israel first, the arms dealers second and the American people a distant LAST.
      Why do you people simply accept this???

      I’ve posed the question before, “Who is going to pay the $30+ TRILLIAN DOLLARS National Debt?(certainly not, America’s BLOATED “1%”)

  6. Why is the EU LOANING money to Ukraine? They are encouraging to Ukraine to fight a larger better armed adversary in a war that has wrecked the Ukrainian economy. How do they expect Ukraine to both rebuild their country and pay off loans? And why make them pay it back when they are allegedly behind them 100% (even though their minimal arms shipments suggest otherwise).
