The US national defense policy bill for fiscal year 2020 has authorized $300 million in military aid to Ukraine, the US embassy in Kiev said Monday on Twitter.

"The National Defense Authorization Act signed by President Trump strengthens U.S. security assistance to Ukraine and reaffirms strong bipartisan US support to Ukraine," said the statement.

Last week, US President Donald Trump signed the bill into law after it was approved by the Congress.

The United States is a strategic partner for Ukraine in defense and security fields, providing the biggest support for the country since the beginning of the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine in April 2014.
