The decision comes as a major boost for Ukraine as Kyiv fights through a grueling 2024 against a better-equipped Russia.

Finally, we see the first step of fairness in making sure that the aggressor, and not the good people from countries that support us, are paying for Ukraine’s victory, Kira Rudik, Opposition leader in Kyiv’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, via 'The Independent'.

We applaud this step.

We hope that it is only the first of many more steps.

And we will use this money wisely, Kira Rudik, Opposition leader in Kyiv’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, via 'The Independent'
