    USD 100 million from US defense budget to be used for supporting Baltics

    WASHINGTON, Nov 14 (LETA--UKRINFORM) - The US House of Representatives and the Senate's Armed Forces Committee last week approved the United States' defense budget, which foresees USD 100 million to be used for supporting the Baltics, according to the document published on the Senate's web-site.

    As part of the European Defense Initiative, USD 100 million will be used in the Baltics to ''improve the region's capabilities to withstand Russian aggression and strengthen military capabilities to deter Russian aggression''.

    Meanwhile, the US will also be allocating USD 350 million to Ukraine.

    Overall, the US will allocate USD 4.6 billion for its European Defense Initiative.
