Vice President of the United States Joe Biden announced $220 million for Ukraine to conduct customs and anti-corruption reforms during his meeting with Ukrainian PM Volodymyr Hroisman on June 15.

As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by the press service of the White House.

This assistance package will continue the U.S. support for Ukraine's efforts to strengthen democratic institutions and the rule of law, reinforce the foundations for sustainable economic growth, and respond to humanitarian needs. The new assistance will also support other key areas of Prime Minister Hroisman's ambitious reform agenda.

The funds will also assist Ukraine with fighting corruption, reforms in judicial system, and reforms of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko.

The aid is also aimed at extending decentralization across Ukraine, helping to improve service delivery, increase citizen engagement and oversight, and raise public awareness of the benefits of reforms, the White House's message reads.
