The European Commission is currently working on a plan to provide Ukraine with sufficient budgetary support for the next year – 1.5 billion euros per month, undisclosed sources told Politico

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal estimated Ukraine's budget gap to be around $3.5 billion per month next year, and the U.S. has already pledged to cover $1.5 billion per month. 

The EU pledged 9 billion euros in macro-financial assistance to Ukraine in May; EU countries have backed 6 billion euros out of that sum, but so far, Ukraine has only received 1 billion euros from the block.
