Ambassador Chaly discusses expansion of military assistance in US defense budget with congressmen

Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valery Chaly and Director General of State Concern “Ukroboronprom” Roman Romanov held meetings with members of the US House of Representatives Armed Services Committee Doug Lamborn and Duncan Hunter at the AUSA 2017 exhibition in Washington.

"Ambassador Chaly thanked the congressmen for the consistent support for Ukraine in countering Russian aggression. In the context of formation of the US defense budget for 2018, the Ukrainian ambassador discussed with the congressmen the prospects for expanding assistance programs for Ukraine in the military and technical sector in the US defense budget in 2018," reads the statement of the Ukroboronprom press service.

The Director General of Ukroboronprom informed the congressmen about the activity of the enterprises of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex and noted the interest in deepening the military and technical cooperation between the arms producers of Ukraine and the United States.

Chaly stressed that a diplomatic solution to the situation in Donbas is possible only if Ukraine has strong and modern army and enjoys further support from the partners, primarily the United States.
