On Monday, U.S. federal court two federal agencies to hand over the documents related to Trump administration's withholding of military aid to Ukraine to the media organization "Center for Honesty in Society", The Hill reports.
"The requested documents are sought in order to inform the public on a matter of extreme national concern," Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, a district judge for the District Court for the District of Columbia stated.
Meanwhile, 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 reported.
"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.
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.
