Ukraine-Russia LIVE: Fears of ‘barbaric’ death ruse after Putin ‘agrees new Kyiv corridor’ | World | News

The UK will aid Ukraine’s economy with $100million (£75.6million) in an attempt to boost the war-torn economy, Number 10 announced on Monday. 

A Downing Street statement said: “The UK allocates an additional $100m directly to the Ukrainian government budget to mitigate financial pressures created by Russia’s unprovoked and illegal invasion.

“This grant could be used to support public sector salaries, allowing critical state functions to keep operating, as well as to support social safety nets and pensions for the Ukrainian people.

“The grant will be provided through the World Bank.”
