Kiev, December 24: The US national defence policy bill for fiscal year 2020 has authorised $300 million in military aid to Ukraine, the US embassy in Kiev said on Twitter. "The National Defense Authorization Act signed by President Trump strengthens US security assistance to Ukraine and reaffirms strong bipartisan US support to Ukraine," the US embassy in Kiev said.
