With the support of the United States and other countries, humanitarian organizations have provided assistance to 11 million people.
“This additional funding will provide emergency hygiene, medical and psychological care, as well as shelter and cash assistance to Ukrainians directly affected by the conflict. The conflict continues to disproportionately affect vulnerable populations, and this funding will support these people in meeting their life-saving needs,” USAID said.
As Ukrinform reported, the United States government allocated $500 million to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development to support business activities, as well as the provision of public services in Ukraine and other countries affected by the Russian war.
