WH: Funds for Ukraine to run out before 2023's end

White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Shalanda Young (pictured) warned on Monday that the funds for the United States to provide Ukraine with military equipment will run out before the end of the year.

In a letter she sent to House Speaker Mike Johnson, which was published by the White House, Young insisted that "[c]utting off the flow of US weapons and equipment will kneecap Ukraine on the battlefield, not only putting at risk the gains Ukraine has made, but increasing the likelihood of Russian military victories."

Young reiterated the necessity of helping Ukraine and not allowing Russia to win to avoid a "larger conflict in the region that could involve NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organization] and put US forces in harm's way." Therefore, she urged Johnson and the House to act and agree on a new bill that would keep the aid for Ukraine going on.
