US to Fund Ukrainian Military

US to Fund Ukrainian Military 14 September, 2019


 According to Voice of America News, the United States is moving ahead with millions of dollars in aid for Ukraine's military.

White House officials Thursday confirmed the release of $250 million in funding from the Pentagon and another $141 million in financial assistance from the State Department.

Some administration officials had said the White House was reluctant to release the money due to high levels of corruption in Ukraine.

Since 2014, the U.S. has given Ukraine about $1.6 billion in security assistance.
