Based on this article of New York times, US has spent about 13.6 billion dollars since start of the war. But the article was published in 18th of the previous month (march). What is this number at the moment? How much the US has spent directly or indirectly to help Ukraine in the war?

    I feel like this could be something that will be hard to answer as it can become tricky has how you classify various items and if it would be count for this measure or not. There are likely plenty of places that money has been spent that some would classify it as spending for Ukraine and others would not.

  • Not only that but military aid is hard to gauge. How do you cost giving fairly old weapons? Gulf War 1 had somewhat of an accounting plus for the USA IIRC: they billed the Saudis for launching old weapons that were nearing obsolescence. Last, the real cost to the USA and even more so to Europe ought to include the impact to the economy, which is much larger than the gear. Still, you can probably find an article that tallies up specific military aid packages. Don't want to overstate Western hardship, not when Ukrainians are suffering so much, but this is costing us.

    Also this question will inherently be outdated in the coming weeks as it is a moving target. Apr 20 at 21:21
  • Based on other articles, the US has spent more than the EU together. Now, just imagine how much Russia will have spent and the numbers of lives including civilian lives lost. I wonder though what one can learn about politics from this question?

    I've edited the title so it's not a moving target anymore.
