The state allocates all taxes from citizens and businesses to meet the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

In addition, funds from allies’ aid and donations from philanthropists are raised to cover the army’s needs. Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announced this during a government meeting.

“Today, Ukraine spends absolutely all of its domestic resources on the war. 100% of taxes paid by businesses and citizens go to meet the needs of the Security and Defense Forces. We have already provided UAH 1 trillion 800 billion / $48 billion in the budget for these needs. And this may not be the final amount,” Shmyhal said.

The Prime Minister also said that Ukraine has already received $28 billion in financial support from partners in 2023. Around $11 billion was from the EU, while approximately $8 billion was provided by the United States.
