The US leads the rest of the world with $196 billion given to Ukraine in the war with Russia
The United States continues to lead the world in contributions to Ukraine with nearly $200 billion in aid promised or sent as the US ally continues its fight against Russia.
According to the Ukrainian government, between January 24, 2022 and November 20, 2022, the US will lead all countries with a total of $196 billion in military, financial and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. With 172 billion US dollars, Germany sent the second most funds in this period.
Over the same period, the rest of the world has contributed less than US$75 billion in total aid, with most of this sum coming from the UK (US$28.2 billion), Poland (US$24.3 billion) and Estonia ($5.48 billion).
These figures do not include loans to Ukraine or additional contributions approved by their respective governments between December 2022 and February 2023.
MATT GAETZ RIPS “BIPARTISAN COALITION” FACILITTING THE WAR IN UKRAINE
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has visited each of these top-paying countries except Estonia.
The growing numbers come as the war between Ukraine and Russia nears its one-year mark. Russia first invaded on February 24, 2022.
Some members of Congress want to curb the US government’s excessive spending, including Rep. Matt Gaetz, who introduced a resolution to end military and financial aid to Ukraine.
“How much more for Ukraine? Is there a limit?” asked Gaetz, R-Fla., on the floor of the house. “What billionth dollar is really kicking in the door? What red line we set we won’t cross later?”
The proposal also urges Ukraine and Russia to strive for a peace deal and urges them to renew their negotiations.
The Ukraine Fatigue Resolution has at least 10 co-sponsors and calls on the US to “stop military and financial assistance to Ukraine and calls on all combatants to reach a peace agreement.”
The resolution notes that the US has made the largest contribution to the Ukrainian war effort by providing financial, military and humanitarian assistance to the US ally.
BIDEN SAYS PUTIN ALREADY LOST UKRAINE
In January, President Biden approved additional security aid, including 31 Abrams M1 tanks for Ukraine. Additionally, reports suggest another $2 billion could be in the pipeline.
“This is about freedom, freedom for Ukraine, freedom everywhere,” Biden said last month.
Gaetz’s resolution claims that the US is inadvertently contributing to civilian casualties by supplying arms and potentially prolonging what he called a “perpetual conflict.”
“America is in a state of managed decline, and it’s going to get worse if we continue to bleed taxpayer dollars on a war abroad,” said Gaetz, a member of the House Armed Services Committee. “We must suspend all foreign aid to the war in Ukraine and demand that all combatants in this conflict reach a peace agreement immediately.”
