Trump considering blocking $250Mln in military aid to Ukraine

US President Donald Trump has seriously considered for the past several weeks cutting $250 million the United States is providing in military assistance to Ukraine, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

On Wednesday, Politico reported that the issue of military assistance to Ukraine was under review, with funds for Ukraine being reserved. The publication added that Defence Secretary Mark Esper and National Security Adviser John Bolton were among the officials dealing with the issue.

The US announced in June that it would provide Ukraine with an additional $250 million in funds to help the country boost its military might.
