Vice President Joe Biden met with junta leaders Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Oleksandr Turchynov in Kyiv and said the United States will pledge an additional $50 million as part of a package of assistance to help Ukraine pursue political and economic reform and strengthen its partnership with the United States, according to CNN.

“You will not walk this road alone. We will walk it with you,” Biden told Yatsenyuk, a former central banker who runs a foundation supported by the U.S. State Department, the National Endowment for Democracy, NATO, Chatham House, Horizon Capital, Swedbank, and the German Marshall Fund.

Biden also said the IMF will soon kick in billions to prop up the regime as it ineptly tries to govern a country riven by social and political chaos following a February coup d’état and the ouster of Ukraine’s democratically elected president, Viktor Yanukovych.

$11.4 million of the $50 million will flow into the coffers of the country’s inapt military. During an “anti-terror” operation last week in eastern Ukraine, the elite Dnipropetrovsk paratrooper brigade surrendered to unarmed pro-Russian activists and turned over their weapons, including armored vehicles, thus revealing problems the junta faces in attempting to pacify parts of the country opposed to the coup and it interim leadership that includes ultra-nationalists and fascists.
