How much has the US already provided in aid?

Last year, Congress passed four spending packages — approving about $113 billion — in aid to Ukraine after Russia’s full-scale invasion on February 24.

This included $67 billion in military procurement funding, over $27 billion for economic and civilian security assistance and $10 billion for humanitarian needs. Young says nearly all of it has been used up since, except for about 3% in military aid.

The Biden administration recently said it has supplied about $44.2 billion in military assistance to the embattled nation since February last year, or more than $47 billion since Russia’s initial invasion in 2014.

Biden's request rejected

Earlier this week, Republicans blocked President Biden's $110 billion emergency spending bill that included $61 billion for Ukraine. They have made clear they will not support further military aid to the country unless the White House agrees to border security reforms.

“Senate Republicans know this isn’t an either-or proposition. We know that national security begins with border security,” said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Biden's military aid package does include funding to improve border security, but Republicans are seeking bigger policy changes.
