In his address to the Congress on Wednesday, February 24, the representative of the United States Parliament announced he will increase funding for Ukraine to counter Russian aggression, Voice of America reports.
“Russia faces a clear choice between the preservation of sanctions and the implementation of its obligations to the sovereign and democratic Ukraine,” the politician made a written statement for the House Committee on Appropriations.
The Secretary of State also said that in exchange, he will require Ukrainian to implement political reforms aimed at normalizing the situation in the country.
Amount requested from Congress in 2016 is $3.4 billion. This exceeds the last year’s funding four times.
