WASHINGTON () – An emergency payout from the World Bank to Ukraine will grow to 460 million euros ($509 million) with contributions from Sweden and the Netherlands, and will be submitted to the board of directors for approval Friday, two people familiar with the transaction. The Ukrainian government could receive the money almost immediately after the board approves the loan, which may be delayed until Monday, one of the sources told . The payout, arranged at an unusual rate for the development lender, would provide Ukraine with much-needed money to bolster its defenses against a Russian invasion that killed thousands and unleashed bombing of urban centers and Europe’s largest nuclear power plant.
