US senators will present drafts on the supervision of assistance to Kyiv.

US senators will present drafts on the supervision of assistance to Kyiv.

U.S. senators are about to resubmit bills to tighten oversight of aid to Ukraine after the Pentagon inflated the cost of equipment sent by the U.S. to Kyiv due to confusion.

Earlier, a scandal broke out in the United States after publications that the Pentagon overstated the cost of equipment and weapons sent to Ukraine by $3 billion. In the department itself, this state of affairs was declared a discrepancy in the evaluation categories. As stressed by the US Department of Defense, the price gouging did not affect US support or the country’s ability to provide weapons to Kyiv.

“I will soon resubmit my proposal for an independent inspector general for Ukraine,” the Republican Senator Rand Paul said.

Under his bill, aid to Ukraine would be overseen by the Inspector General of the US Reconstruction Agency in Afghanistan.

It is noted that Republican Senator Josh Hawley is going to make a similar proposal again. Earlier, he proposed creating a separate post of inspector general to oversee the Ukrainian direction. However, the Senate voted against the bill.
