“Direct investment and cooperation with world’s leading arms producers will ensure Ukraine transition to international standards and reorientation to new markets,” – said Roman Romanov.

During negotiations, UKROBORONPROM Western partners assured that American society and business are ready to provide comprehensive support to Ukraine.

On Tuesday, March 24, The US Congress adopted resolution, appealing to President Barack Obama to give Ukraine lethal weapon. Resolution was supported by 348 members of Congress, the absolute majority.

One of USA-Ukrainian cooperation priorities is import substitution of Russian spare parts and full independence of Ukrainian defence enterprises from Russian defence industry.

In addition, partnership formation with world's leading defence companies will strengthen Ukraine’s international authority and deepen cooperation with NATO member countries.

In march 2015, Ukraine took delivery of 10 US Humvee armored vehicles, two days after American lawmakers voted to urge President Barack Obama to provide "lethal" aid to Kiev.

In total, the US plans to send 200 regular Humvees, radios, counter-mortar radars and other non-lethal equipment worth $75 million.
