The United States has announced the issue of $60 million in support for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, the State Border Guard Service, and the National Guard.

"As of mid-August, we have announced $60 million in support for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, the State Border Guard Service, and the National Guard," reads a posting on the Web site of the White House dated September 5.

Deliveries so far have included meals ready-to-eat, body armor, radios, vehicles, thermal vision devices, medical supplies, explosive ordinance disposal robots, uniforms, and individual tactical gear, reads the report.

Shipments are planned through late 2014 and will include night vision devices, additional communications equipment, and more helmets, according to the document.

Additionally, two significant events with the Ukrainian military are planned for September 2014: Sea Breeze and Rapid Trident. The first is an annual multilateral naval exercise, which will occur in international waters. The second exercise is focused on ground forces and involves 15 countries at a training center in Western Ukraine.
