About the fact that after the final adoption of the above document, the American budget will allocate almost 61 billion dollars to Ukraine, and also how the Cabinet of Ministers will redistribute these funds, writes NBN, referring to the official Telegram channel of Prime Minister Denis Shmygal.

According to Shmygal, the long-awaited amount of aid from the United States is $60.8 billion, will be distributed as follows:

  • $49.9 billion will be spent to cover the needs of the defense sector;
  • $7.8 billion will be given to support the expenditure side of the Ukrainian state budget;
  • for stabilization of the economic situation in the country —$1.57 billion;
  • for the protection of the borders of the Ukrainian state and the process of humanitarian demining —$0.4 billion.

It should be noted that the bill must still be considered in the US Senate, presumably no later than Tuesday, April 23, and only after approval by functionaries, the document will be sent to American leader Joseph Biden for signature.

Earlier, we wrote about the fact that the ambassador named the timing of sending weapons to Ukraine after approval by the US Congress.
