Is US considering 'lethal aid' to Ukrainian government?

  • The Obama administration is exploring the option of sending arms to Ukraine’s government in the fight against separatists, media reports said.

    The reports said that the possibility of sending lethal aid such as defensive weapons was being looked into. Officially, the US government said it was “constantly assessing” its Ukraine policies.

    There has been a sharp escalation in the fighting in eastern Ukraine in the past few weeks, with pro-Russia rebels pushing to gain more territory.
