Another round of negotiations about providing Ukraine with lethal weapons took place. The country’s defense minister Stepan Poltorak posted this at Facebook after his meeting with U.S. Congressmen William Flores and Andrew Harris.
The sides discussed the latest developments in Donbas and the situation with disengagement of forces. ‘The Russian military aggression is a challenge not only to Ukraine, but also the EU and NATO member countries,’ Poltorak wrote.
Congressman Flores confirmed that the U.S. is ready to continue to support Ukraine, both politically and by providing practical assistance. ‘Americans are amazed by the stoutness of Ukrainians and their will for independence and the European future. The U.S. Congress also supports Ukraine on the law-making level, including the extension of anti-Russian sanctions,’ Flores said.
