The President spoke about the record military budget.

Ukraine will receive this year’s defensive weapons from the United States. This was stated by President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko on his page in Facebook on Tuesday evening, January 2. He also said that the military budget will reach a record 86 billion.

“We’ll get lethal defensive weapons from our partners in the United States. And will continue to strengthen the Ukrainian army with modern military equipment of domestic production”, – wrote Poroshenko.

In addition, the head of state noted that Ukraine’s Armed forces have become one of the most effective armies in Europe.

Recall that in late December it became known that the United States took the decision to sell defensive weapons to Ukraine.

According to media reports, the total value of the defense package for Ukraine will be $ 47 million. It will include 210 anti-tank missiles and 35 launchers.
