"American military delegation visited the anti-terrorist operation zone… During the visit the American party got acquainted with the security politics on the territory of Luhansk and Donetsk regions and saw the effectiveness of the use of equipment provided by the US," the statement says.
The Ukrainian government has been conducting a military operation in the country's eastern regions since April 2014. In February 2015, Kiev and the southeastern militia signed a deal in the Belarusian city of Minsk on reconciliation. The deal includes a ceasefire and means to monitor and verify it, and the withdrawal of weapons from the line of contact.
According to the latest UN data, the total number of the victims of the conflict amounts up to more than 10,000 people.
The US consistently expressed support of Ukraine in the conflict and supplied military equipment to Kiev which included radio systems, unmanned aerial vehicles, tracking radars and other non-lethal systems.
