US to provide $10 billion aid to Ukraine in coming days, says Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen

The US will provide additional economic assistance of $10 billion to Ukraine in the coming days, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday.

At a media briefing held on the sidelines of the first G-20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors’ (FMCBG) Meet, she said that the United States had already provided 46 billion dollars in security, economic and humanitarian aid.

“Our economic assistance is making the resistance possible, funding key public services and is keeping the (Ukrainian) government running,” she said, noting that February 24 would mark one year of Russia’s “unjust war” on Ukraine. Continued robust support for Ukraine will be a major topic of discussion during her time in India, she added.
