White House budget director: Without congressional agreement, aid to Kiev will run out by 2023

The funds allocated by the United States to support Ukraine could run out by the end of the year due to the failure of Congress to approve new aid, putting Kiev in serious difficulty in the ongoing conflict with Russia. This is the warning, reports the "Financial Times", launched by the White House budget director, Shalanda Young, who in a letter addressed to the Democratic and Republican leaders of Congress underlined how the lack of political agreement between the parties on a further military aid package for Ukraine risks putting the Eastern European country to the test. “Without congressional action, we will run out of resources by the end of the year (necessary to) procure more weapons and equipment for Ukraine and to provide equipment from U.S. military stockpiles,” Young wrote to political leaders of both parties, stating that “cutting off the flow of U.S. weapons and equipment will bring Ukraine to its knees on the battlefield, not only jeopardizing the successes achieved, but increasing the probability of Russian military victories."

Young insisted on the urgency of breaking the deadlock. “There is no magic pool of funds available to meet this moment. We are out of money and almost out of time,” he added, recalling that the latest US security packages “have already become smaller and aid deliveries have become more limited”, while “our allies around the world have stepped up to do more." The request for $106 billion presented to Congress by the president Joe Biden for emergency funding for – among others – Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific, is currently stalled due to growing opposition from Republicans to continuing to support Kiev. Some lawmakers — especially in the Senate, where support for Ukraine is more entrenched — are trying to negotiate a bipartisan deal that would contain aid for Kiev along with new immigration and asylum procedures to reduce the number of undocumented people coming to the United States from the southern border. The White House's warning, adds the "Financial Times" citing sources close to the dossier, also falls while the member states of the European Union are busy reaching a budget agreement in Brussels on an allocation of 50 billion euros for the Ukraine.
