How much are governments actually supporting Ukraine?

Since the Russian invasion of Ukrainian territories in February 2022, many politicians around the world have pledged to support Ukraine. But what are the numbers behind this support? Christoph Trebesch compiled press releases by governments, political statements and media reports to create the most comprehensive database on support for Ukraine. Interviewed at the CEPR’s June 2022 Paris Symposium, he shows how the United States is the largest supporter of Ukraine. But he also calls on European governments to do more and stand up to the challenge.
