“On Monday, December 27, 2021, the President signed into law: S. 1605, the ‘National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022,’ which authorizes fiscal year 2022 appropriations principally for Department of Defense programs and military construction, Department of Energy national security programs, and intelligence programs”, the White House said in a press release.

Earlier this month, the NDAA got an overwhelming support in both chambers of US Congess.
The final version of the bill includes $300 million for military aid to Ukraine; however, legislators did not add sanctions against Russia’s sovereign debt or against the Nord Stream 2 project.
It also includes a 2.7% pay increase for troops, as well as more aircraft and Navy ship purchases.
