The official spokesman for the Pentagon, Jeff Davis, on Tuesday did not exclude the situation in which the United States can begin deliveries of lethal weapons to Ukraine.
"We did not provide Ukraine with lethal defensive weapons in the past, but we do not rule out such a possibility in the future," he told reporters.
In early May, the Senate of the US Congress approved the draft federal budget until September 30, 2017, which continues to provide financial assistance to Ukraine in the amount of at least 410 million 456 thousand US dollars, including military support. It is noted that the Pentagon can spend $ 150 million on "providing assistance, including (military) training, equipment, lethal weapons for defense purposes, logistics assistance," and "reconnaissance community assistance for the military and national security forces of Ukraine."
