The U.S. Congress may support a bill that provides for the allocation of $ 1 billion for energy security in Europe, including Ukraine. It is reported by the Government Portal.
It is reported that during his visit to the United States, Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Dmytro Kuleba advocated the adoption of a draft European energy security law that has already been submitted.
The law provides for the allocation of about $ 1 billion to American companies for the construction of energy infrastructure in Central and Eastern Europe, including Ukraine. This will make it possible to diversify gas supplies and reduce dependence on Russian energy resources.
“This is not just about Ukraine, but about the strategic balance in the entire region, in particular, Russia's influence in Central Europe and the Western Balkans,” Kuleba said.
As we reported, the House of Representatives of the US Congress supported the bill on the defense budget for 2020 in the amount of 738 billion dollars. The law provides for the allocation of $ 300 million to Ukraine.
