The U.S. Senate has approved the consolidated draft of the state budget for the current financial year (it expires on September 30, - 112 International). The vote took place on Thursday, May 4.

79 senators supported the bill, and 18 said no. The House of Representatives already voted for the bill, so it is now only up to president Trump to sign the bill for the budget to take effect.

As 112 International reported, according to the law, the U.S. government would allocate at least 560 million dollars, 238 of which will be assigned for further reforms in defense and security policy in Ukraine. The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine reported that at Facebook on May 2.

Assignations for other support programs will be increased by 27 million dollars compared to the last year’s sum.
