The U.S. Department of State has confirmed that the United States will provide Ukraine with “enhanced defensive capabilities” to defend its territorial integrity from Russian-backed separatists in Donbas.

“U.S. assistance is entirely defensive in nature, and as we have always said, Ukraine is a sovereign country and has a right to defend itself,” reads the statement.

Earlier, the U.S. media reported that the US Department of State decided to approve the delivery of small arms to Ukraine.
