U.S. authorities are going to give $150 million to Ukraine in order to ensure national security in 2017.

This bill provides allocation of $150 million, particularly aimed at arming and military trainings, to promote security in Ukraine.

This amount is already included in the U.S. budget bill for guaranteeing national security in 2017.

It is also known that the Republican Party impugns the reluctance of the administration to provide Ukraine with lethal weapons to confront the Russian aggression.

In conclusion, Ukraine also signed an agreement with the EU, according to which Kiev will receive 97 million euros for decentralization reforms.

In 2014, Russia made several incursions into Ukrainian territory. Beginning with Crimea, Russian soldiers without insignias took control of strategic positions and infrastructure within the Ukrainian territory of Crimea, which was annexed by Russia after a disputed referendum. Subsequently, demonstrations by pro-Russian groups in the Donbass region of Ukraine escalated into an armed conflict between the Ukrainian government and separatist forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.
