The US provided roughly US$47 billion in military aid to Ukraine between January 24, 2022 and January 15, 2023. This is more than any other country. Recently, Biden announced $500 million when he visited Kiev for the first time.
Russia has more total nuclear weapons than the United States, but the Federation of American Scientists estimates that they have no preparations for deployment or use. Citing NATO and US aggression, Putin has repeatedly threatened nuclear annihilation.
