 Ukraine to receive US military aid in near future, - Ambassador Chalyi

U.S. military aid supplies are likely to be started soon.

Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valerii Chalyi said on air of Voice of America, Censor.NET reports referring to Interfax-Ukraine.

"658 million dollars included in the budget [the amount of the U.S. aid to Ukraine in 2016 - ed.] is an achievement. ...The new bills make it possible to use these funds. It means there are items that need additional legislative regulation. For example, things that are necessary for the Ukrainian army but not being in service with the U.S. army. These bills are intended to get those common policies on military and security assistance realized in concrete supplies," the ambassador said.

"I think soon, just in a short term, a few months, we will have and speak about such supplies in Ukraine publicly," Chalyi predicted.
