U.S. House of Representatives has voted in favor of allocating 698 million dollars in financial assistance to Ukraine. This sum will be transferred to Ukraine in 2020, Voice of America reports.

Ukraine will receive 2.3 million dollars more than in 2019. House of Representatives supported financial assistance during the voting on the 2020 bills regarding the U.S. Government’s financing. U.S. Senate should consider assistance to Ukraine later.

Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur said that the new assistance demonstrates "strong and reliable support of U.S. authorities for Ukraine".
