The house of representatives of the United States Congress unanimously voted for the law “On support of stability and democracy in Ukraine”, under which Washington will be able to officially supply to Ukraine lethal weapons. On Thursday said the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States.
“In the list of statutory coordinated with allies and partners of the United States support tools included Ukraine lethal defensive weapons,” – said at the Embassy.
Also the document prohibits Washington’s recognition of the fact that the reunification of the Crimea with the Russian Federation and commits to maintain the sanctions regime against Moscow to complete her fulfillment of the Minsk agreements.
Ukrainian authorities have repeatedly appealed to Western countries with a request to increase the supply of arms, including lethal. Recently Deputy chief of the General staff armed forces of Ukraine Igor Romanenko resentfully reproached the West that Kiev has allocated only $ 600 million, while Afghanistan, the United States and Europe have given $ 15 billion.
Earlier, Washington at the official level was supplied to Ukraine clothing and protection, and sent instructors to teach Mat.
However, Republic of Donbass repeatedly reported that the Ukrainian military used anti-tank systems and drones set by the United States.
