In an attempt to garner increased support from Republicans who voted against further aid to the war-torn country, the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden has disseminated information on the benefits states have derived from military assistance to Ukraine, reports Reuters.

The data reviewed by the publication's sources illustrate a breakdown of investments across states amounting to $27 billion, which the White House spent on procuring ammunition and vehicles for the needs of the U.S. military and its allies.

Pennsylvania, receiving $2.4 billion - more than any other state, secured orders for the production of weapons and ammunition, along with investments for implementing new technologies.

Meanwhile, Texas obtained $1.45 billion for manufacturing 155mm projectiles and other weaponry. Arizona received approximately $2.2 billion. Both Pennsylvania and Arizona are pivotal swing states that are expected to have crucial significance for Biden in the coming year.

According to the disseminated documents, companies in Arkansas and Wisconsin secured contracts totaling over $1 billion. It is reported that an additional $18 billion in contractual funds has been distributed among manufacturing facilities located in more than two dozen other states.

Aid from the U.S. to Ukraine

On October 1, the U.S. Congress passed a temporary budget bill that did not include new funding for assistance to Ukraine, as this initiative was decided to be considered separately.

Following this, U.S. President Joe Biden proposed allocating $106 billion to Congress. The majority of these funds, around $60 billion, are intended for assistance to Ukraine.

Later, Politico reported that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to hold a vote on President Joe Biden's request for aid to Ukraine and Israel on December 4.
