The US Department of State does not exclude the possibility of supplying the Ukrainian army of lethal weapons, transmits RIA News Statement by the Representative Office Heather Nauert.


State Department does not exclude the supply of lethal weapons to Kiev


We do not supply arms (to Ukraine), but we do not exclude such a possibility. We have nothing to say about this,
said nuerth at the briefing.

She stressed that the United States "is closely watching the events in Ukraine." In particular, the representative of the State Department recalled, the special representative Kurt Volker repeatedly visited Ukraine.

Earlier, Volker said in an interview with Politico that it is simply necessary to supply arms to Kiev, since the country protects its integrity.

I do not see any arguments why the case with Ukraine should be special, why we will not do this, especially when they are actively trying to defend their territory,
said the special envoy of the United States.

In his opinion, the arguments that these shipments will lead to an escalation of the conflict are not weighty.

Recall, recently, the representative of Kiev in the humanitarian subgroup at the negotiations in Minsk, Viktor Medvedchuk, said in an interview with the Russia 24 channel that providing lethal weapons would not help, but would aggravate the peace resolution and the peaceful settlement in Donbass.

      Hello Sergey! Ambassador of Russia: "Washington needs to return to dialogue with Moscow, or it will be worse." Anatoly Antonov turned to his American colleagues and called for renewed contact between intelligence agencies, defense departments and parliaments. The ambassador expressed confidence that the absence of such a dialogue leads only to deterioration of relations between the parties, as well as mutual distrust."(The first Russian TV channel" Tsargrad "07:50., 30.11.2017/XNUMX/XNUMX.) hi

      And what, does the APU have a few weapons that kill? Another will come - it will be necessary to "share" with Donetsk and Lugansk. What will change, apart from the fact that Russia will have its hands untied to help LDNR with weapons and equipment.

        one is not enough: firstly, they are being sold to ISIS, secondly, they are exchanged for grub by the DPR, thirdly, they are sold to the first person they meet on the street, fourthly, they are thrown onto the battlefield when they run away after another attack

    The Americans still cannot understand whether their corporations will receive money from Ukraine for the sold weapons or not. Everything else is gossip.

      Just in this situation, the topic of finance may recede before the desire to "pull" Russia into direct and undisguised contact with the Armed Forces of Ukraine ...
      If successful, the United States will not reckon with any costs.

        If these costs do not profit corporations, politicians will not do it. Otherwise, who will finance them in the next election.

      These weapons, in fact, have already been paid by NATO members for unfastening 2% of GDP to the US treasury. Just redistribution of the item of expenditures on the rearmament of the NATO troops. Arms can be delivered to Ukraine not directly, but through the Baltic countries and Poland.

    Losing Russia to Syria, and this is generally on the BV, the United States will now be closely engaged in Ukraine. And to tell them firmly, like Erdogan - “what are you doing here 12 thousand kilometers from your shores”, we cannot. All are trying to "make friends." And the reason, in my opinion, is one - the billions of dough of our "elites" hidden from them,

      Well, one bet didn’t "play" - ISIS, there is a "trump card in the sleeve" - ​​the Kurds ...
      The Americans in the territories of the SAR, where they managed to gain a foothold, feel not bad at all ...

      Syria, then, is not Vietnam ... Nobody gave them on the neck. no

        Russia did not allow the United States to tear apart Assad, like Hussein and Gaddafi. And for the "eastern" mentality (to respect strength), this is a big indicator. Russia remains in Syria for 49 years, on legal international rights, unlike the United States. hi

    US Department of State does not rule out

    We start to deliver, then at the decision-making stage, then something else. At this time, Ukraine, salivating, still stands with outstretched hand. I hope that this will continue further. Although even the supply of already cutting rumors "Javelins" will not help the APU.

    You may not supply, and your companies supply not only American weapons.
