According to a recent report from the Kyiv School of Economics, Ukraine would require hundreds of billions of dollars to rebound from its conflict with Russia.
Ukraine’s prime minister stated this week that the country needed $750 billion for a three-stage rehabilitation plan following Russia’s invasion. The Kyiv School of Economics estimates since February 24 there have been $108.3 billion in total losses reported, thus at least $185 billion will need to be recovered. This suggests that the nation has to be repaired for a minimum of $185 billion, roughly double the amount of losses.
The “Build Back Better concept” is used to describe this rehabilitation strategy. Authorities use the phrase, which was made famous by The World Economic Forum, to describe their efforts to establish electronic dictatorship and achieve ESG-compliant goals.
Zelensky continues to hold the position that Ukraine needs $7 billion in help each month despite Joe Biden having previously signed a $40 billion aid agreement for the country this year. The United States has already deployed more than 15 military aid packages to Ukraine, not including the other nations that have made financial and logistical contributions.
This article is not intended to disparage Ukraine or its citizens, but rather to ask: Does the United States have a critical security priority here?
Keep in mind that the US has already spent $8 billion on the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which is more than we did during the first five years of the Afghan war. My blog entry about this is available here:
- With tens of billions of dollars’ worth of military equipment on the way, we have already spent $8 billion on military aid for the Ukrainian government. The United States has already spent more on security aid to Ukraine than it did throughout the first five years of the Afghan war, according to data.
