The US paid nothing to Iraq or Vietnam. Neither Russia nor the US paid anything to Afghanistan.

The only time I can think an aggressor country was forced to pay reparations - post WW2 - was Iraq paying compensation to Kuwait. Given that was the result of a UN Security Council Resolution, I wouldn't count on Russia paying Ukraine a single ruble.
