U.S. to provide $1.3 bln of additional aid to Ukraine

 


The United States will send $1.3 billion more in aid to Ukraine to help the conflict-hit country overhaul its energy grid and modernise its ports, railways and other infrastructure, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Wednesday.


Of that amount, $520 million will go towards helping Ukraine overhaul its battered energy grid, while $657 million will be used to help modernise its border crossings, ports, rail lines and other critical infrastructure, Blinken said.


About $100 million will be used to help digitise Ukraine's customs and other systems "to boost speed and to cut corruption" and another $35 million to help Ukrainian businesses through financing and insurance.


The new aid comes on top of more than $20 billion in economic and development assistance the United States has provided to Ukraine, Blinken said.
