US announces additional $1.7 billion aid to Ukraine
The United States Treasury announces it will send an additional $1.7 billion in economic aid to Ukraine to help fund the country’s recovery from Russia’s invasion.
“This aid will help Ukraine’s democratic government provide essential services for the people of Ukraine,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says in a statement.
The funds are part of the $7.5 billion aid package signed by US President Joe Biden in May.
