MINSK, 29 August (BelTA) – The decision on military aid from the United States of America to Ukraine will be made soon, BelTA learned from the U.S. President's National Security Advisor John Bolton on 29 August.
Asked why the decision to revise the USA's military aid to Ukraine had been made, John Bolton spoke briefly: “The answer will be given soon.”
In his words, there was and there is broad cooperation in defense affairs between the USA and Ukraine and other countries in the region. “This cooperation was mutually beneficial for all countries. We will make up our minds and will make the decision on the matter soon,” he said.
A number of mass media quoted a high-profile source in the White House as saying that Donald Trump has given instructions to put on hold military aid for Ukraine in order to make sure this aid is used effectively from the point of view of Washington's interests. U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and Donald Trump's National Security Advisor John Bolton will have to take care of it.
