The White House announced the lack of funds for long-term support for Ukraine.

The United States does not have money for long-term military support for Kyiv, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said at a briefing.

“They (funds) are sufficient to meet Ukraine’s immediate needs on the battlefield… but this is not a long-term solution,” she said.


According to Jean-Pierre, the White House remains confident that Ukraine will receive the necessary assistance, given the promise of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy to continue supporting Kyiv.


The day before, US President Joe Biden signed a law approved by Congress, which provides for the continuation of funding for government work for a period of 45 days – until November 17. However, the document does not include the allocation of funds for the needs of Ukraine.

Biden’s signing of the law approved by Congress finally dispelled the uncertainty that had reigned in recent weeks regarding the “shutdown” that threatened the country, that is, the suspension of the federal government, which could begin on October 1.
