Next year, the United States will provide Ukraine $ 300 million in military assistance, which will make it possible to obtain lethal weapons. The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Andriy Zagorodniuk wrote about this on his Facebook page.
According to him, US assistance "gives us the opportunity to get lethal weapons, coastal defensive missile systems and anti-ship missiles."
We recall, in total, the US defense budget is $ 738 billion, of which $ 71.5 billion is allocated for the continuation of military operations in Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen and the fight against terrorism in other countries.
If this item were not canceled, the Pentagon would have to provide Ukraine with financial assistance in the amount of $ 250 million for 45 days.
