Law on Lend-Lease in Defense of Democracy in Ukraine of 2022
May 28, 2022
The Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022 is an act of the US Congress, according to which the Ukrainian government will be supplied with material resources similar to the Lend-Lease Act during World War II . The new law removes bureaucratic hurdles and allows the US government to quickly provide arms and other supplies to Ukraine or the governments of Eastern European countries affected by Russia's invasion of Ukraine to fight. It is assumed that, just as during the Second World War, the recipient country will pay only for the equipment supplied under Lend-Lease, which was left after the end of the war. Full title: "The Law on providing the President with enhanced authority to conclude agreements with the Government of Ukraine on the provision or lease of defense means to this Government to protect the civilian population of Ukraine from the Russian military invasion and for other purposes" (eng. An Act To provide enhanced authority for the President to enter into agreements with the Government of Ukraine to lend or lease defense articles to that Government to protect civilian populations in Ukraine from Russian military invasion, and for other purposes).
