Despite the disagreement of the White House, the U.S. Senate passed the bill on defense spending, which, among other things, involves the provision of weapons and other military assistance to Ukraine, Joinfo.ua informs.
According to the document, Ukraine will be provided with military assistance in the amount of $ 300 million. The money will be spent on radars and anti-tank weapons.
Previously, a different version of the bill was passed by the House of Representatives and now it is needed to agree on a joint bill.
President Barack Obama, who did not agree with other points of the bill that are not associated with Ukraine, already warned that he would veto it.
