Washington will deliver to Ukraine another 100 humvees, according to US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt.

KIEV, July 18 (Sputnik) – One hundred High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles, or Humvees, were delivered to Ukraine on Saturday, US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt said Saturday.

'Another 100 humvees for #Ukraine delivered to #Odesa this morning,' Pyatt said on his Twitter.
