The ambassador also stressed the role of the U.S. support for Ukraine.
"Thanks to the joint efforts of all our friends, including the support of the Congress, $330 million have been allocated in this year's budget only for security needs, including $50 million for lethal weapons. If there is a political decision, it may also be done.
"And most importantly, $650 million exceed the request of the administration by $150 million. These funds are non-corrupt, they are transparent, controlled, and they are definitely spent to first of all enhance Ukraine's security capabilities as well as loan guarantees for $1 billion, which is also stipulated by the U.S. budget," Chalyi noted.
