MOSCOW, November 25 (Sputnik) – The Ukrainian hacker group CyberBerkut published on Tuesday documents showing, in particular, that the Ukrainian military are receiving hundreds of thousands of dollars from Washington.
"After examination of just a several files there is the impression that the Ukrainian army is the branch of US Armed Forces. The volume of US financial assistance amazes with its scale. They also show the highest level of degradation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Besides, thousands of dollars go on personal accounts of military personnel and used by certain officers in personal needs. What will the American taxpayers say?" the statement published on the official CyberBerkut web page said.
Earlier, the United States said it had no intention of supplying Ukraine with lethal weapons, instead planning to deliver non-lethal aid, including armored vehicles, radars, body armor, binoculars, small boats and other gear. However, the documents leaked by the hackers reveal that Washington's aid to Ukraine includes lethal weapons, such as rifles, grenade launchers and mortars.
