The US is willing to provide more support to the Ukrainian navy and is open to new military sales to Kiev, the US special envoy to that country, Kurt Volker, told reporters.
“The US remains committed to providing assistance to Ukraine for its military forces, including its navy,” the official said, adding: “We are also open to military sales to Ukraine if the Ukrainian government wants it.”
Also, the US can provide Ukraine with additional anti-tank weapons systems.
“Ukraine has expressed interest in acquiring more of these [anti-tank systems], that’s possible,” Volker said.
He added that “we also have to see things like air defense and coastal defense.”
On the 12th of this month, the US Department of Defense reported that President Donald Trump requested 250 million dollars in the 2020 budget so that the Pentagon can contribute to the army and national security of Ukraine.
