The U.S. will be providing Ukraine with an additional $8 billion to bolster its border guard capabilities, the White House announced Friday.
Vice President Joe Biden announced Friday that the U.S. will provide approximately $8 billion to help bolster Ukraine's State Border Guard Service. Biden shared the news with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during a phone call on Friday.
"This additional assistance," the White House said, "includes engineering equipment for improving infrastructure along Ukraine's borders, transport and patrol vehicles, surveillance equipment to extend the visual range of border security patrols, and small boats to conduct maritime patrol and interdiction operations."

Obama is GIVING (without Congressional approval???) Ukraine $8 Billion dollars of our money to secure THEIR border, and yet REFUSES to secure our own!!
It's curious that this "announcement" comes on the same day that Twitter is alive with reports of Ukrainian Soldiers not getting paid today, as well as the stated date that Ukraine would be officially out of money.
Even more curious is how CNN and the Evening News shows have not even mentioned it.
How many miles of Mexican Border fence could be built for EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS?????? Wasn't The God-King Obama just whining THIS AFTERNOON about having no money for Border Protection?
Obama is so far out of bounds, I can’t believe he’s still in office. But, I can, because the country is so full of low information voters who can’t believe what a self-absorbed dictator he is, and who can’t tell what’s good or bad for themselves without a cheat sheet.
how can Odumbo give a single cent of US taxpayer money to ANYONE without congressional approval?
Is this satire?
Well, if nobody stops him....
Well I`m sure the “new cold warriors” will cheer this, anything to “fight them roo-ooskies”.
“how can Odumbo give a single cent of US taxpayer money to ANYONE without congressional approval?”
He is THE GOD-KING of America now. He is above mere things like LAWS or the Constitution.
Just ask anyone in the US Mainstream media, that wants to keep their job, about this!
No, sadly it is on UPI’s Front Page....
And ZERO outrage from the very same media playing up the plight of those poor, diseased children at our own border.
$8 BILLION, but yet the feds won’t spring a nickel, let alone actually enforce the laws on the books, and throw our southern border wide open!
Forget about CWII, that war is already lost. Time for the states to declare war on washington AND mexico! And I do mean a HOT war!
The Ukrainian Parliament is in emergency meeting on how to divide up the aid!
The money will be deposited electronically into their Swiss back accounts.
“The Ukrainian Parliament is in emergency meeting on how to divide up the aid!”
Hey, Ukraine. How about loaning our money back to us?
$8 billion for Unkranain border security, meanwhile Border Patrol is having to account for EVERY ONE OF THE BULLETS.
“Thank you, Muslims, for building the very fabric of the USA” —> meanwhile NO VISAS for Israelis.
THIS IS AN INSULT.
Wait must a minute. I thought we were broke and couldn't afford to keep up our border guards or give them ammo. But, hey, it's for his muzzy bros so he can write out a check for with his super duper magical pen without following that pesky old Constitution and asking pretty please from Congress.
After what Obama said in his presser today, this REALLY should be in Breaking News, IMHO.
It's 8 million, not 8 billion. UPI's own website links to the White House press release if you click on the 'White House' hyperlink in their story.
Probably a typo on UPI's part.
The guy knows how to rub the American people's face in crap, no doubt about it.
I can't think of too many things that would be a bigger middle finger salute to the majority of American population, can you?
You are correct, the Press Release says $8 million, not billion.
The question still remains, though. Where does this money come from? Obama’s Stash??
can we have some of that??
Kuwait News Agency is reporting USD 8 million.
