US examining option of supplying arms to Ukraine: Obama
February 10 , 2015
US president Barack Obama has indicated that his country was examining the option of supplying weapons to Ukraine in case a diplomatic solution to the crisis cannot be found.
He accused Russia of violating "every commitment" it had made in the Minsk agreement.
Obama’s comments came after a meeting with German chancellor Angela Merkel, who is opposed to supplying lethal defensive weapons to Ukraine.
The fighting in eastern Ukraine between government forces and pro-Russia rebels has killed more than 5,300 people.
