"The document includes major provisions of the draft 'Ukraine Cybersecurity Cooperation Act.' It also confirms Washington's commitment to the U.S.-Ukraine Charter on Strategic Partnership, the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, and support for Ukraine's cooperation with NATO," the Embassy of Ukraine in the United States wrote on Facebook.

In addition, the U.S. Department of State is instructed to report to the U.S. Congress on the state of cooperation with Ukraine in the field of cybersecurity.

The NDAA shall be enacted by U.S. President Donald Trump's signature.

As UNIAN reported earlier, the House of Representatives of the U.S. Congress supported the allocation of $250 million to boost Ukraine's security and defenses, including $50 million for lethal weapons.
