The US has not yet decided on the supply of lethal weapons to Kiev. This was announced by the special representative of the US Department of State for Ukraine, Kurt Volker.
“I have no news on this. There is nothing that the official representatives of the State Department and the National Security Council have stated officially.” – Volker told reporters on Tuesday.
According to Volker, there are foreign forces that occupy a part of Ukraine.
“Ukrainian soldiers die every week, defending their country. We should look at this not in the context of an escalation of the conflict, but how we can help the country protect its territory and its people.” – the special representative added.
