    Washington will deliver to Ukraine another 100 humvees, according to US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt.

    KIEV, July 18 (Sputnik) – One hundred High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles, or Humvees, were delivered to Ukraine on Saturday, US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt said Saturday.

    "Another 100 humvees for #Ukraine delivered to #Odesa this morning," Pyatt said on his Twitter.

    A first batch of 10 Humvees was delivered to Ukraine in March.

    The vehicles are delivered to Ukraine within the framework of non-lethal military aid program to Kiev, whose forces are fighting independence supporters of Ukraine’s southeast.

    Washington has been providing Kiev with non-lethal military assistance over the past year. In April, the United States sent 300 troops to Ukraine to train the country’s National Guard.
