27 April, 2022

The Committee on Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives informs that the country will vote on April 27 for the Ukraine Democracy Defense Lend-Lease Act of 2022. The head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak also confirmed the reports.

According to him, if the law is passed, it will significantly speed up the supply of weapons, transport, food and other assistance for rent or free of charge from the United States to Ukraine.

The Lend-Lease was originally a policy under which the United States provided ammunition, equipment, food, and strategic raw materials, including petroleum products, to its Allies in part free of charge.

The U.S. Department of Defense earlier also established a control center to coordinate the supply and optimize the delivery of military aid to Ukraine in Germany, in the area of ​​focus of the United States European Command.

"After yesterday's meeting of defense ministers of 40 countries in Ramstein, Ukraine received a lot of positive news," Yermak said.
