WASHINGTON, November 30. /TASS/. The US Congress is set to allocate $350 million for military assistance to Ukraine, a source in the US Senate Armed Services Committee told TASS.
The source said next year’s draft defense budget includes "$350 mln for Ukraine."
"It is authorization for lethal assistance," the source said, adding that the decision on allocating the money will be in the authority of the US president, with no preconditions.
The 2017 defense budget, recently agreed by both chambers of the Congress, will be put to the vote later this week.
