Ukraine has submitted a request to the U.S. concerning purchase of military equipment through Pentagon’s sales program, as William Taylor, Chargé d'affaires a.i of the U.S. in Ukraine, reported through the American Embassy on Twitter.
“I’m pleased to announce that Ukraine has requested for the first time to purchase military equipment through the U.S. Department of Defence Foreign Military Sales program. We are beginning the review process for that request. The United States stands firmly with Ukraine in support of its sovereignty, territorial integrity, and defence sector reforms,” Taylor noted.
As it was reported, the U.S. defence budget provides allocations for Ukraine in the amount of $100 million for lethal weapon.
