Who’s arming Ukraine?

The US and the UK have supplied the most military aid since the start of Russia’s invasion.

By Ben Walker

The Ukraine support tracker from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy reveals which countries are aiding the Ukrainians in their fight against Russia. The database covers an array of help, be it humanitarian, financial or military. On the latter, it is the US that is clearly dominant.


The UK, meanwhile, comes second, with €2.4bn sent, and Poland not far behind with €1.7bn. 

And while the Baltic states’ figures may look small in comparison to others, as a share of GDP Estonia and Latvia are giving far more than other countries. 

France, meanwhile, ranks 13th for military aid, at just €162m, compared with Germany, which has provided €1.4bn.
