Poroshenko-appointed governor of odessa region Mikhail Saakashvili bragged after a meeting with US Ambassador to Ukraine about how many cookies he has been promised by the American.

Posting on Facebook he let it be known (originally in Russian and Ukrainian):

The US government has agreed to fund the initial project for the registration service and other reform initiatives.
