The U.S. plans to allocate an additional $500 million to bolster Ukraine’s energy grid, local media reported on Nov. 16, citing Biden administration officials.

"The United States has already provided Ukraine with more than $520 million in aid for the energy sector. We know that another $500 million is on the way," said U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Resources Geoffrey Pyatt.

Money will be allocated to high-priority areas such as transformers and repair capabilities.

Every Western decision is late by a year, says Zelensky.

Western partners have been deliberating key decisions on military assistance for Ukraine for "too long," President Volodymyr Zelensky said on May 20 in an interview with Reuters.
