U.S. Department of Defense Representative Colonel Thomas Campbell said that the U.S. government would pay 35,2 million dollars under the contract. Ukraine will receive 250 million dollars of financial aid by the end of 2019, CNN reports.
"The department is still speeding up the process of providing sanctioned aid for Ukraine and is committed to allocating money as quickly as possible in accordance with contracting procedures as required by law," Campbell said.
It worth mentioning that the USA refused to investigate delays in military aid to Ukraine. The decision was made by Inspector General of the US Department of Defense Glenn Fine, according to CNN.
Ministry apprehended that investigation could duplicate or interfere with Trump’s impeachment inquiry.
As we reported earlier, U.S. ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland told a Ukrainian official that his country would likely not get nearly $400 million of military aid unless they pursued investigations demanded by President Donald Trump, revising earlier testimony to the Trump impeachment inquiry, Reuters informed.
Sondland testified before the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress last October. During nine hours of testimony, he explained how President Trump's relations with the new Ukrainian government shaped and evolved.
