The meeting took place on Tuesday, the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States wrote on its official Facebook page.
“As Senator Blunt is a member of the Appropriations Committee, a separate topic of the talk was the discussion of prospects for increasing spending in the US budget for support programs for Ukraine in 2020, in particular, in the field of security and defense,” reads the post.
In addition, the ambassador told the Senator about the current situation in certain areas of Donbas and Crimea temporarily occupied by Russia and stressed the importance of further strengthening of the Ukrainian-American strategic partnership.
