The United States has increased COVID-19 related funding for Ukraine by US$1.8 billion.

"Earlier this month, the United States announced an increase in COVID-19 related funding for Ukraine, from US$15.5 million to nearly US$17.3 million. The newest funding of nearly US$1.8 million will support the International Organization for Migration(IOM)'s activities in eastern Ukraine, supporting IDPs [internally displaced persons] and other conflict-affected populations," the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine said on Facebook on July 14, 2020.

It says with the funding, IOM will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 through provision of humanitarian assistance, support for isolation and treatment centers, health and hygiene programs, and more.

"The United States continues to stand with Ukraine in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences," reads the report.

As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's Cabinet of Ministers had already allocated UAH 19 billion (US$701.4 million) to fight against the coronavirus.
