The decision of US President Joe Biden to allocate additional funding to Ukraine for defense spending demonstrates to the world and in particular to the Kremlin Washington's unconditional support for Kyiv. This was by the said former US Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor, writes Dom.
“This is an additional amount, additional money within the limits of assistance that is provided for security and which complements the amount already allocated. This year, the United States has already provided $ 250 million in assistance to Ukraine to strengthen security. It will become a signal for both Ukrainians and Russians. A signal that the US supports Ukraine, "he said.
In addition, the former ambassador noted that Washington highly appreciated the Ukrainian assistance to the American military in organizing the evacuation of people from Afghanistan, captured by the Taliban.
US President Joe Biden instructed the State Department to allocate about $ 60 million to Ukraine. The funds will be allocated at the expense of the Pentagon. The memorandum states that the funds will go "for defense products and services of the Ministry of Defense, as well as for military education and training to assist Ukraine."
