Russia’s war against Ukraine has triggered a humanitarian crisis and resulted in massive refugee flows to neighboring countries. It has also exacerbated global food insecurity. Congress passed two emergency supplemental appropriations bills in FY2022 (P.L. 117-103, Division N, and P.L. 117-128) that included a combined nearly $8.9 billion for the humanitarian response in Ukraine and other countries directly affected by the conflict. The Biden Administration’s November 15, 2022, emergency supplemental funding request included $500 million in humanitarian assistance for “vulnerable and displaced populations in Ukraine, the broader region, and around the globe.” In addition, the Biden Administration is providing Temporary Protected Status to Ukrainian citizens already in the United States. The European Union (EU) and individual European countries also have played a main role in addressing the crisis.
