The U.S. Senate passed a bill on U.S. defense policies and spending for 2018 yesterday, which includes provisions about rendering military assistance to Ukraine.

The document was submitted to U.S. President Donald Trump for signing.

In line with the bill, the U.S. Department of Defense is authorized to spend $350 million for supplies of defensive weapons and equipment to Kiev, and for training Ukrainian servicemen. However, the act imposes limitations on the use of these funds.

Only a half of the overall sum will be available at first, with the rest allocated only after the Congress receives assurances that the Ukrainian government had carried out successful institutional reforms in the military sphere.
