The US Congress will not support the plans of President Donald Trump's administration to reduce financial assistance to Ukraine, Senator Jeanne Shaheen said.

"Ukraine has a strong support and I think that Congress will not support the proposal to do what the Trump administration would like to do with respect to cutting the budget," Shaheen said.

According to her, Ukraine enjoys the support of Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Earlier, the White House Administration proposed to cancel the decision to allocate funds from the US budget to provide military assistance to a number of countries, and to give loans for the purchase of military equipment instead.
