KIEV, February 17. /TASS/. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry has presented to the United States a list required military hardware, presidential adviser Yuri Biryukov said on Tuesday.
"The negotiations (with the American side) are continuing non-stop. In part, they are underway at the level of the Ukrainian defense minister. We have dispatched to the United States a specified list of what we need. The first tranche of $350 million extended for three years and an possible extra billion dollars are being discussed. The Americans are not replying with an emphatic No. They say the White House has not made a decision yet, but while it is being considered let us keep working. There are armored vehicles and firearms on the list," the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN quotes Biryukov as saying.
Last week a group of Republican senators presented to the US congress a bill empowering the president to supply armaments to the government of Ukraine. The document was registered in the electronic data base of the US Congress.
The Ukrainian parliament’s first deputy speaker, Andrey Parubiy, said he was going to the United States later this week to negotiate supplies of modern military hardware to Ukraine.
Earlier media publications said the US government is considering sending Javelin anti-tank missiles, small arms and munitions to Ukraine.
