Growing number of Americans believe that US expenditure on Ukraine is excessive

(MENAFN) According to a recent Pew Research study, more than a quarter of Americans now think President Joe Biden's government is being overly generous with its aid to Ukraine, and this figure is rising. The percentage of those who still think Washington should boost its economic and military assistance has decreased by half in the past year.

In line with a poll released on Tuesday, 26 percent of Americans now believe that the United States provides too much help, up from only 7 percent in March. 20 percent of respondents stated that the United States should provide more aid, while 31 percent believed that the amount is "about right." The results demonstrate a significant shift from March of last year, when 42 percent of respondents to a Pew survey stated that they believed the United States wasn't doing enough for Ukraine.

Since that initial survey, the United States has significantly expanded its help to Kiev and has already committed over USD110 billion in economic and military aid. Anti-air systems, armored vehicles, and more than a million artillery rounds have been given to Ukraine as part of Washington's attempts to support its military, with Biden promising to continue the supplies supply "for as long as it takes."
