At the moment, official Kyiv and Washington continue to discuss the types of weapons that Ukraine should receive. This was stated by former U.S. Chargé d'Affaires in Kyiv, William Taylor in an interview with TSN.

"The U.S. Congress has already signed up for specific weapons systems. We have already talked about them. These are anti-ship missiles, drones, radio communication equipment. This is what is being received. And this is an important component for Ukraine so it could defend itself against the Russians," Taylor said.

According to him, the Ukrainian authorities, the Ukrainian Minister of Defense and his team are working closely with the US Embassy in Kyiv to find out what types of weapons will be provided by Washington. The United States, for its part, wants to extend the dialogue with the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine and the Chief of the General Staff, General Ruslan Khomchak, to clarify what specific weapon systems the Ukrainian army needs.

In December 2019, U.S. President Donald Trump signed the state’s military budget for 2020. In accordance with it, financial military assistance for Ukraine will amount to 300 million dollars.
