KYIV (Reuters) - Ukraine's Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal thanked the United States on Saturday for its support after Ukraine received a further $1.5 billion in international financial assistance.

"The state budget of Ukraine received a grant of $1.5 billion. This is the last tranche of $4.5 billion aid from the United States from @WorldBank Trust Fund," Shmyhal tweeted.

He said the funds would be used to reimburse budget expenditure for pension payments and social assistance programmes.

Unfortunately, these billions and billions in funds just seem to be encouraging more war, while paying billions to Ukraine's pension funds does nothing to make them want more to negotiate for peace.

a country that collapses will freeze and be run over. While you are rich and spoilt, most Ukrains are relatively poor and now at risk. They need that money to be able to buy bread and heat their houses in winter. Get some reality. These billions are nothing if you calculate them per us capita. Giving Ukrain ground to Russia and Putin however has immensive consequences for your mid term future in this world..

"He said the funds would be used to reimburse budget expenditure for pension payments and social assistance programmes." No excuses now when it's time to shore up the US Social Security Program. The US government should add billions in funds to the US SS Program, just like it did to help the government of Ukraine pay the pension fund obligations of Ukraine.

It is the morally correct defense of the right of free people to self determination and national sovereignty and a repudiation of unjustified military aggression. Your position is morally bankrupt.

I wonder why Putin has been messing around. Is it because it amuses him to watch Russian soldiers expire on the battlefield?

I think it amuses him to see the US spend billions and deplete our stockpile of weapons and oil and make us venable

I'm sure the widows and orphans of deceased Russian soldiers share his amusement. You are defending the morally indefensible, my friend.

The US and other Western nations are helping Ukraine defend itself against an unjustified invasion by Russia. There is a morally correct side here. Do you not see it?

No other countries? You are woefully misinformed. Come back when you can speak intelligently on the matter.
