The purpose of the allocated funds is to help NATO allies replenish the weapons that they had to transfer to Ukraine free of charge.
The United States plans to allocate $35 million to Georgia to strengthen its defense capability. This was reported on Wednesday by the Georgian news service with reference to a letter received from the U.S. Department of State.
“Georgia will receive $35 million, which includes a set of equipment for the brigade, a system operating against unmanned aerial vehicles, a tactical data system for advanced field artillery, mobile capabilities and cyber defense capabilities,” the report said.
The Department of State has already sent a letter to the U.S. Congress on April 24. The purpose of the allocated money is to help NATO allies replenish the weapons that they had to transfer to Ukraine free of charge.
Georgia and the United States have been cooperating since 1992 in the fields of politics, economy, trade, and since the late 1990s – in the field of defense and security. In January 2009, a Charter of strategic partnership between the two countries was drawn up in Washington, providing for the development of cooperation in the fields of security, defense, trade, economy, culture, as well as in the humanitarian field.
