U.S. Security Assistance to Ukraine [Updated March 28, 2022]   [open pdf - 542KB]

From the Document: "In advance of Russia's attack on Ukraine, the Biden Administration and the 117th Congress had boosted security assistance to Ukraine and continue to consider further options. Since Russia launched its invasion in February 2022, the Biden Administration has authorized a total of $1.35 billion to provide immediate security assistance 'to help Ukraine meet the armored, airborne, and other threats it is facing.' In addition, the Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022 (P.L. 117-103, Division N) includes $3.5 billion to replenish Department of Defense (DOD) equipment stocks that have been or are to be sent to Ukraine and $650 million in Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Ukraine and 'countries impacted by the situation in Ukraine.' Defense appropriations also include $300 million for DOD's Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI). Even prior to the start of the war, Ukraine was a leading recipient of U.S. military aid in Europe and Eurasia. From 2014, when Russia first invaded Ukraine, through March 2022, the United States has committed more than $4 billion in State Department- and DOD-funded security assistance 'to help Ukraine preserve its territorial integrity, secure its borders, and improve interoperability with NATO.'"
