On Saturday, US Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker said that US Secretary of Defense James Mattis had brought defensive equipment for the Ukrainian armed forces when he visited Kiev on August 23-24. During the visit, Mattis noted that the United States has provided Ukraine with $750 million in military assistance in past years.

"This year, we have received substantial aid from the United States, a part of this aid is currently in the area of military operation in Donbass," Lt. Gen. Yuriy Allerov said, as quoted by the Ukrainian Interior Ministry's press service.

Ukraine, which has been mired in a military conflict in the southeastern region of Donbass for three years, has repeatedly asked to be supplied with lethal and non-lethal weapons from the European Union and the United States.
