The American Analytical Center Heritage Foundation, whichis believed by observers and media to be "the think tank of the administration of Donald Trump," issued a report urging to arm Ukraine, writes Voice of America.

"In the coming weeks, President Trump will decide whether to approve the sale of U.S. weapons, including advanced anti-tank weapons, to Ukraine. Russia invaded Ukraine. Russia illegally occupies Crimea. Russia provoked and now supports a separatist movement in eastern Ukraine. Russia is the aggressor and Ukraine is the victim. Every country has the right to self-defense. The people of Ukraine have shown a commitment to the transatlantic community, and the U.S. should provide advanced weapons and other tactical enablers, such as secure communications, to the Ukrainians. Doing so should not be viewed as a silver bullet in solving the crisis and ending Russian aggression. While the future success of Ukraine will rest in large part on the shoulders of Ukrainians themselves, U.S. leadership is essential for counteracting Russian aggression and supporting reform," the message on the center's website says.

As it was reported earlier Senator James Inhofe wrote a letter to President Trump encouraging increased support for Ukraine.

“Russia’s continued aggression and repeated refusal to respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity warrants a strong response from those of us who respect the rules-based international order. Our response should include lethal military hardware as part of the broader effort to help Ukrainians defend themselves and deter future aggression,” the Senator wrote.
