The US President Donald Trump has signed a package of legislative acts approved by Congress, increasing aid to Ukraine to almost $ 700 million. This was reported on Facebook by the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States.
“The package includes the law on appropriations of the state Department, foreign operations and related programs for the 2019 financial year. The budget of assistance to Ukraine under this law has been increased and approved in the amount of 445.7 million dollars”, the report says.
It is claimed that a significant part of these funds will be used to increase (up to $ 115 million) the cost of providing military-technical support to Ukraine under the program “International military financing”.
The Embassy also reported that the total amount of funds to help Ukraine in the 2019 budget year, taking into account the 250 million previously allocated to the Pentagon, is almost 695.7 million dollars.
