It should be noted that Ukraine plans to direct funding to the development of intelligence structures.
The previous draft of the US military budget, the size of which was about 607 billion, previously rejected by United States President Barack Obama. He said that spending on the defense industry is too high, and that it is necessary to take the path of cuts in the military budget. As a result, those who prepare the budget decided to cut funding for several military programs, but the item on providing financial assistance to Kiev in the draft budget is still there.
The Ukrainian authorities continue to hope that Washington will, within the framework of “helping Ukraine”, start deliveries to the country of the so-called lethal weapons, including anti-tank complexes.
One of those US senators who advocate the transfer of lethal weapons to Ukraine is the head of the weapons committee, John McCain.
