The Pentagon is sending $200 million to Ukraine to assist the country with its self-defense capabilities.
The Defense Department issued a statement Friday, saying the move reaffirms the country’s relationship with Ukraine.
The funds bring the total aid to Ukraine up to $1 billion since the annexation of Crimea in 2014.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the U.S. must take action against Russia’s destabilizing activities, including its illegal occupation of Ukraine.
The latest allocations of funds comes as President Trump has been criticized for being too lenient on Russia.
However, the additional resources are an effort to defend the territorial integrity of Ukraine against Russian aggression.
