The U.S. Senate has passed the final National Defense Authorization Act, which foresees the allocation of $250 million in security assistance to Ukraine.

"The U.S. Senate has passed the final National Defense Authorization Act that was earlier approved by the House of Representatives. The act provides for allocation of $250 million to the U.S. Department of Defense for providing security assistance to Ukraine, including $50 million for defensive weapons," Ukraine's Embassy in the United States announced on August 2.

As noted, the document includes the main provisions of the draft law on cybersecurity cooperation with Ukraine. The act also confirms the commitment to the United States-Ukraine Charter on Strategic Partnership, the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances and support for Ukraine's cooperation with NATO.

In addition, the U.S. State Department is instructed to report to the Congress on progress of cybersecurity cooperation with Ukraine.

The National Defense Authorization Act will come into force after it is signed by US President Donald Trump.
