The U.S. President's National Security Council has announced the allocation of $5 million for Ukraine's primary needs amid the ongoing armed conflict in the southeastern part of the country.
"Today we have announced a new $5 million for provision of body armor, night vision goggles & add'l comms equipment for Ukraine," the NSC said on Twitter.
The U.S. had earlier signaled its willingness to render military-technological assistance to Ukraine. U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden had said while visiting Kyiv in April that Washington would provide some $20 million to Ukraine for its security forces.
Interfax sources in Ukraine's defense sector said most of the U.S. aid would be addressed to the State Border Service.
