The United States is going to sell to Poland 32 F-35 fighters for $ 6,5 billion. The Defense Security Agency (DSCA) reported this.

In addition to aircraft, Poland is going to buy 33 more F-135 engines and other equipment.

These fighters will replace the old MiG-29 and Su-22. It is noted that such a purchase will support US foreign policy and national security, by improving the security of NATO's ally.

"This sale is consistent with US initiatives to provide key allies in the region with modern systems that will increase compatibility with US forces and security," the report said.

For all approvals regarding the sale of fighters, representatives of the US government and contractors should  travel to Poland. There, representatives of American contractors will carry out maintenance after the delivery of the aircraft.

Earlier it was reported that the United States in the near future plans to resolve the issue of the amount of military assistance to Ukraine.

In late June, the US Senate approved a draft law on the defense budget for 2020, which provides for the allocation of military assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $ 300 million. The bill provides for the allocation of $100 million for lethal weapons.
