“[Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)] provides $250 million for the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, which provides support and assistance to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, of which $50 million can only be used for lethal defensive equipment,” reads the summary of provisions in the FY21 NDAA posted on the website of the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services.


In addition, the prohibition on funding for any activity that would recognize the sovereignty of the Russian Federation over Crimea will be extended.


“[FY 2021 NDAA] continues to limit military-to-military cooperation with Russia, extending a rule of construction that the prohibition does not affect bilateral military-to-military dialogue for the purposes of reducing the risk of conflict,” the summary reads.
