#FoxNews: Ukraine aid surpasses $113 billion

The United States government has spent at least $113 million on the war in Ukraine, but that total could be considered much greater due to the cost of replacing weapons and munitions sent to Kyiv, as estimated by the Pentagon, Fox News Digital has learned.

Fox News Digital first reported in September that the United States had spent a total of $101 billion on the war. Since September, the U.S. has spent at least an additional $13 billion, according to documents from the White House Office of Management and Budget sent to Sen. JD Vance, R-Ohio.

White House Office of Management and Budget Director Shalanda Young broke down some of the spending in a letter to Vance, which was obtained by Fox News Digital. Young also acknowledged an additional $2.4 billion in "shifted base" funding that "was not explicitly for Ukraine supplemental purpose," so that funding was "excluded" from the total estimate she provided.
