US to give Ukraine Extra $17.7m in humanitarian Aid

The US government has agreed to give Ukraine millions of dollars in aid, including food, shelter and water, the White House confirmed. This follows a discussion between US Vice-President Joe Biden and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, RT reported.
“The vice-president informed President Poroshenko that the US will offer additional $17.7 million,” the White House said in a statement. The declaration clarified that the money will be allocated for medical needs, foodstuffs and drinkable water.
Biden also told Poroshenko during their meeting on Monday that the US is ready to give Ukraine some loan guarantees worth $1 billion as part of its financial support in 2015.
Last week the EU approved a new bailout package for Ukraine worth $1.93 billion with the first $643 million slice being provided in the summer, according to the EU Commission.
