According to Yelchenko, military assistance is expected to begin arriving in February.

As we reported earlier, the United States of America froze military aid to Ukraine 90 minutes after Donald Trump’s July 25th conversation with Volodymyr Zelensky. It was reported by BBC News, citing the governmental email.

According to the agency, after the telephone negotiations between the Presidents ended, Mike Duffey, the White House official, contacted the select OMB and Pentagon officials in order to pause the aid to Ukraine.
