The USA can allocate 30 million dollars less to Ukraine for military assistance, Reuters reports.

Officials noted that 90% of the previously agreed amount is planned to be allocated to Ukraine in the framework of military assistance.

On September 19, the House of Representatives of the US Congress passed a law on the allocation of 250 million dollars to Ukraine for military assistance.

It was stated that the US Embassy in the United States confirmed the unblocking of US financial aid to Ukraine.

As we reported earlier, in late August, the White House asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper and then-national security adviser John Bolton to review a program of assistance to Ukraine that prompted bipartisan criticism from the US Congress.

According to the US Department of Defense, military assistance to Ukraine from the US since 2014 considered 1.5 billion dollars.
