New US envoy for Ukraine: US considering issue of sending weapons for Ukraine

The US authorities are actively reviewing whether to send weapons to Ukraine so that to help fighting against Russian-backed militants.

New US special representative for Ukraine Kurt Volker stated this in an interview with BBC.

According to him, arming Ukrainian government forces could change Moscow's approach

At the same time, Volker doesn’t consider such a move to be provocative.

"Defensive weapons, ones that would allow Ukraine to defend itself, and to take out tanks for example, would actually to help to stop Russia threatening Ukraine .I 'm not again predicting where we go on this, that's a matter for further discussion and decision, but I think that argument that it would be provocative to Russia or emboldening of Ukraine is just getting it backwards,” Volker said.
