The US did not begin yet the considering of the provision of Ukraine with lethal arms. The speaker of the United States Department of State Heather Nauert claimed this as the press service of the department reported.
‘There was the BBC headline that suggested that we are in the process of the thing that you told. We did not begin yet this. I will even remove the word ‘yet’ - we did not begin it’, Nauert noted.
Moreover, she added that ‘the US did not provide Ukraine with the defense equipment and also such possibility was not excluded’.
Earlier the mass media reported that the US Special Envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker claimed that Washington considers the possibility to provide Ukraine with arms to support it in the fight against the Russia-backed militants.
Later, Volker claimed at the interview to Nastoyashee Vremya that the Trump Administration is checking the stage of this issue and deciding whether to provide Ukraine with defense arms or not.
