The U.S. Office of Management and Budget is urging congressional leaders to approve additional funding for Ukraine, warning that without action, there will be no money left to support Ukraine’s war against Russia by the end of the year.

The director emphasized the urgency to pass funding to supply weapons and equipment for Ukraine, stressing that ending U.S. assistance would have significant consequences for Ukraine and global security.

“I want to be clear: without congressional action, by the end of the year we will run out of resources to procure more weapons and equipment for Ukraine and to provide equipment from U.S. military stocks,” Office of Management and Budget director Shalanda Young wrote.

“There is no magical pot of funding available to meet this moment. We are out of money — and nearly out of time.”

“If our assistance stops, it will cause significant issues for Ukraine,” Young added.

“While our allies around the world have stepped up to do more, U.S. support is critical and cannot be replicated by others.”

“To date, you have supported $111 billion in supplemental funding to support Ukraine and critical national security needs. Of that, $67 billion, approximately 60% of the Ukraine supplemental funding that Congress has previously authorized, has bolstered our [Defense Industrial Base] in America or supported [Department of Defense] and intelligence operations.”

“That has improved our own military readiness since DOD is buying new equipment to replace what we are sending Ukraine, jumpstarting and expanding production lines, and is supporting good-paying jobs in dozens of states across the country.”

“If Ukraine’s economy collapses, they will not be able to keep fighting, full stop,” Young said.

“[Russian President Vladimir Putin] understands this well, which is why Russia has made destroying Ukraine’s economy central to its strategy — which you can see in its attacks against Ukraine’s grain exports and energy infrastructure.”

“I must stress that helping Ukraine defend itself and secure its future as a sovereign, democratic, independent, and prosperous nation advances our national security interests,” Young continued.

“It prevents larger conflict in the region that could involve NATO and put U.S. forces in harm’s way and deters future aggression, making us all safer. As President Biden has said, when dictators do not pay a price for their aggression, they will cause more chaos and death and destruction.”

“They just keep on going, and the cost and the threats to America and to the world will keep rising. The path that Congress chooses will reverberate for many years to come.”

“We are out of money to support Ukraine in this fight. This isn’t a next year problem. The time to help a democratic Ukraine fight against Russian aggression is right now. It is time for Congress to act,” she concluded.

The letter highlighted the need for immediate action from Congress to support Ukraine in its fight against Russian aggression.
