The US is ready to lead a loan of $50bn to Ukraine repaid by profits from frozen Russian assets if the EU can indefinitely extend sanctions against Moscow, according to a leaked discussion paper.

The US proposal is outlined in an EU discussion paper, seen by the Financial Times, prepared for a virtual meeting of the bloc’s finance ministers on Wednesday to discuss how to raise upfront money for Kyiv.
