US halts long-term military deals with Ukraine

United States State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller announced on Monday that the government decided to suspend the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) and Foreign Military Financing (FMF) programs.

"While we have some remaining drawdown authority that we can draw on to continue to provide security assistance to Ukraine in the short-term... USAI funding has been suspended, FMF funding has been suspended," Miller stated during a press briefing.

He also stated that the State Department is urging Congress to restore security aid funding for Kiev, both in the short and long term.
