The document features basic provisions of the draft law on the cooperation with Ukraine in cybersecurity issues. According to the Ukrainian embassy in the U.S., it foresees the active support of Ukraine's cybersecurity and cutting the dependence on Russian information and communication technologies. 

The U.S. draft defense budget for 2019 is yet to be coordinated with the version approved by the Senate, and then it should be passed - once again - by both chambers of the Congress. Then, it will be submitted for President Trump's signature.
