    U.S. Sends Additional $125 Million in Urgent Energy Support for Ukraine

    January 19, 2023 - Turan Information Agency


      The Biden Administration on Wednesday announced that it will work with Congress to program an additional $125 million in funding to support Ukraine"s energy and electricity grid against Russia"s continued attacks on utilities and other civilian infrastructure, TURAN's Washington correspondent reports.

      This funding will be used to acquire essential industrial equipment to maintain water supply and heating systems in and around Kyiv, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in a statement.

      "Throughout its war against Ukraine, Russia has systematically targeted the energy grid in order to leave millions without power, water, or heat. Russia, in doing so, has sought to sap Ukraine"s resilience and determination during the cold winter months. Nevertheless, these attacks have made the Ukrainians only even more determined to persevere," Blinken said.

      The U.S. "remains committed" to supporting the government and people of Ukraine in responding to Russia's brutal war against them, USAID said in a separate statement.

      In addition to strengthening Ukraine"s energy security during wartime, USAID assistance helps farmers in Ukraine to continue growing food for domestic and global markets, supports Ukrainian efforts to document and seek accountability for war crimes and human rights abuses, fills key gaps in Ukraine"s health system, and helps local government bodies in 91 communities respond to challenges caused by Putin"s brutal invasion.
