US agrees $12bn aid for Ukraine – media

The US Congress has reached a preliminary agreement on the allocation of additional assistance to Ukraine.
     The United States has tentatively agreed on a new $12 billion financial aid package for Ukraine. This is reported Reuters.
     It is noted that congressmen came to the relevant agreement during the discussion of the new bill on temporary spending of the United States.
     The US will also provide funding for the resettlement of Afghan refugees through this act, the source said.
     Earlier, US President Joe Biden asked Congress to provide Ukraine with new emergency military and economic assistance in the amount of $11.7 billion.
     Recall that in early September, Biden approved a tranche of assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $675 million.
     The new military aid package includes thousands of ammunition, hundreds of armored vehicles and other weapons.
