In its past two budget proposals, the Trump administration proposed cutting the State Department program for Ukraine to $20 million. Each time, Congress rejected the cut and appropriated $115 million for Ukraine from the program, called Foreign Military Financing.

As White House officials prepared their 2021 budget request, set to be released Feb. 10, the Ukraine Foreign Military Financing program was once again on the chopping block, with officials weighing another attempt to cut it down to $20 million, according to two people with knowledge of the deliberations who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

But after inquiries Wednesday and Thursday from the Washington Post, OMB denied that any cut would be proposed, with a spokesperson saying the budget would propose $115 million for the program, extending existing funding levels.
