The defense budget is 607 billion dollars.

The law defines the amount of $ 300 million for help Ukraine with weapon, if the White House concider it to be necessary.

On November 10 the US Senate approved the reworked draft of budget for US defense needs, which provides the allocation of $ 300 million for military assistance to Ukraine.

Senate adopted this decision after approval of this document in the Chamber of Representatives. The draft of defense budget has changed since Barack Obama vetoed it last month for the number of reasons, which are not related to Ukraine.
