U.S. approves selling 16 patrol boats to Ukraine

The U.S. State Department has approved the possible sale to Ukraine of up to 16 Mark VI patrol boats and equipment for an estimated $600 million, according to a statement from the Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

"The proposed sale will improve Ukraine’s capability to meet current and future threats by providing a modern, fast, short-range vessel," the agency said in the statement, adding Ukraine will be able to better defend territorial waters and other maritime interests. 

"Ukraine will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces," Reuters cited the statement as saying.
