While the officials emphasized that the US administration hasn’t reached a final decision on the issue, the Pentagon strongly supports such actions.

As it was reported earlier, the Pentagon proposed a plan on providing Ukraine with weapons. American military officials and diplomats say the arms, which they characterized as defensive, are meant to deter aggressive actions by Moscow, which has given tanks and other arms to separatists battling Ukrainian government forces.
