The US Senate approved the state budget provided $560 million for Ukraine.
The U.S. Senate approved the draft budget for the 2017 financial year (ending 30 September – ed.) which provides for the allocation of Ukraine $ 560 million.
The total amount of the state budget amounted to the draft $ 1.1 trillion. The bill was supported by 79 senators, 18 put it against.
The house of representatives voted for the document the day before, so for the final entry into force of the budget remains the only President to Donald Trump to put his signature.
It is expected that the President will sign the document quickly, because Friday ends the term permitted government funding, after which may come the government “shutdown”.
The updated budget includes an increase of $ 15 billion in defense spending and an additional $ 1.5 billion for border security, primarily in the South, with Mexico.
