On February 24, 2022, Russia began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Since that time, the United States and its allies and partners have rapidly transferred defense articles to the Government of Ukraine to support the defense of Ukraine. The United States provides defense items through multiple programs and authorities, including Presidential Drawdown Authority and the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative. The United States has provided more billions of dollars in aid to support these efforts. As a result the DoD OIG, along with other government organizations, have provided oversight of this support by conducting independent and objective audits, evaluations, and investigations to promote efficiency, ensure accountability and prevent fraud, waste, and abuse. 

In September 2023, the Chair of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency announced the selection of the Honorable Robert P. Storch, the DoD Inspector General, as the Lead Inspector General (Lead IG) for Operation Atlantic Resolve. The Department of State IG was selected as the Associate Lead IG. The DoD IG will work closely with the other Lead IG partner oversight offices—the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development OIGs—to prioritize comprehensive oversight of all aspects of U.S. Government’s activities related to Operation Atlantic Resolve (OAR) and assistance to Ukraine. Most recently, in December 2023, Congress re-designated the Lead IG as the Special Inspector General for OAR with additional responsibilities and reporting requirements regarding Ukraine oversight.
