Two representatives of the Democratic Party Senator Richard Durbin and a Congressman Michael Quigley said that it was time to provide lethal weapons to Ukraine for protection from Russian separatist forces in the east of Ukraine.
This was reported by radio Svoboda that interviewed politicians during their visit to Kyiv.
The conflict in Ukraine reached the point where “we have to honest,” Senator Durbin said.
Talking about Russia’s actions, he noted:
“Things they do in the east of Ukraine, in Donetsk do not show they are ready to withdraw. We have to give instruments and weapons to Ukraine it needs to protect its people.”
The Congressman Michael Quigley also stands for giving lethal weapons to Ukraine as, according to him, the country’s enemy uses the latest technologies.
Both politicians say they are not content with US President Donald Trump’s position concerning Ukraine. His position is “schizophrenic to some extent’, and it changes depending on who the President listens to and what he’s watching, according to Michael Quigley.
