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.
According to the hackers, the information was obtained during the visit of US Vice President Joe Biden to Ukraine last week, when they were able to access confidential State Department documents via a mobile device of a US delegation member, RIA Novosti reported.
"After examining only part of the documents, one gets the impression that the Ukrainian Army is one of US Armed Forces units. The amount of financing is shocking in its scope and the decline of the Ukrainian Army – in its depth. Moreover, hundreds of thousands of dollars are going into the personal accounts of (Ukrainian) troops and are being used by officers for their personal needs. What will US taxpayers say about this?" the statement published on the official CyberBerkut web page said.
CyberBerkut claims the United States is allocating almost a million dollars on creating "linguistic laboratories" and buying textbooks in order for Ukrainian soldiers to understand orders from Washington.
Other documents published by the hackers indicate that Washington is ready to supply Ukraine with "400 units of sniper rifles, 2,000 units of assault rifles, 720 hand grenade launchers, nearly 200 mortars and more than 70,000 shells for them, 150 stingers and 420 anti-tank missiles".
The United States said earlier that it had no intention of supplying Ukraine with lethal weapons.
