    The Government has passed an order to receive a second grant from the US this year to the tune of USD 2.5 billion announced Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.

    According to him, the funds will come through the project of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as well as the International Development Association. In addition, another resource worth USD 150 million will be provided by other partners, which will allow us to leverage USD 2 billion 660 million.

    "What will these funds be used for? To pay salaries to our rescuers, teachers, doctors, to help pensioners, internally displaced persons, people with disabilities and low-income families," the Prime Minister noted.

    Denys Shmyhal emphasized that since the beginning of the year, Ukraine had obtained almost USD 5 billion in support from the EU and more than USD 2 billion - from the United States.

    "We have an agreement on a new program with the IMF. We received financial assistance from Great Britain, the World Bank, Germany, Spain, Finland, Ireland, Switzerland, Belgium, Iceland, and Estonia. Norway has extended the program of payments for 50,000 Ukrainians who are facing difficult living conditions and have suffered from russian aggression," said the Head of the Government.

    Likewise, payments under UN and Red Cross programs continue. In addition, as the Prime Minister noted, over the past 7 months, within the framework of a joint project of the Ministry for Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories, Ukrposhta, and international organizations, one-time cash assistance for the total amount of more than UAH 300 million has been provided to residents of the de-occupied territories.
