According to a U.S. Congress report, the United States is a leading contributor of foreign assistance to Ukraine, including over $300 million a year since FY2015 in nonmilitary, non-humanitarian assistance. The United States also provides substantial military assistance to Ukraine, including via a newly established Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative that provides “appropriate security assistance and intelligence support” to help Ukraine defend against aggression and support its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The United States has been a leading contributor of foreign assistance to Ukraine. Non-military, non-humanitarian assistance in FY2014 amounted to around $80 million and rose to around $315 million in FY2015. In FY2016, non-military, non-humanitarian assistance totaled $575 million, around half of which ($290 million) was the subsidy cost of a $1 billion sovereign loan guarantee, the third the U.S. government had extended to Ukraine since 2014.

The United States has also provided military assistance to Ukraine. In July 2016, the White House stated that the United States had committed over $600 million in total security (mostly military) assistance since the Ukraine conflict began in 2014 (this included funds for FY2014 and FY2015).

According to the SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) arms trade database since 2015 United States has delivered 210 FGM-148 Javelin Anti-tank missiles, 50 HMMWV Up-Armored APV (Armored Protected Vehicle) M-1114 and M-1151 versions, 13 TPQ-36 Fire-finder Artillery locating radar, 5 Island Patrol craft Ukrainian designation Slavyansk, and 150 FGM-148 Javelin Anti-tank missiles.
