Ukraine and the Pentagon signed the treaty about military cooperation. The ceremony took place at a meeting in London on Thursday. The press service of the U.S. Department of Defense reported this on September 8.

‘As a demonstration of continued U.S. support for Ukraine, Secretary Carter and Minister Poltorak co-signed a bilateral partner concept, a document that provides a framework for the United States and Ukraine to enhance the defense capacity of Ukraine's forces, advance critical Ukrainian defense reforms, improve resource management processes,  and boost defense technology cooperation. This partner concept will build on the strong partnership between the U.S. and Ukraine and will enhance the effectiveness of U.S. security assistance efforts. Since 2014, the United States has committed more than $600 million in security assistance to Ukraine, including training programs to enhance Ukraine's internal defense capabilities, equipment to support the operational needs of Ukraine's security forces, and a robust advisory effort to advance the implementation of key defense reforms’, reads the message at the Pentagon’s press service’s website.
