United States of America should provide Ukraine with lethal weapons to defend against Russian aggression.

This was stated by the Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on armed services John McCain, reports “Radio Freedom”.

“Vladimir Putin has stepped up its aggression in Ukraine. Ukrainians are dying. We should give them weapons to defend themselves. I would call it a top priority for the United States to give Ukraine lethal weapons that will help her defend herself. Such as Javelin, counterbattery radars. The current government and our Minister of defense positive,” said McCain.

On March 22 the Verkhovna Rada adopted an appeal to the U.S. Congress on security assurances. In it Ukraine asks the United States the status of the main ally outside NATO, and bilateral military agreement between Ukraine and the United States. This includes providing our country with lethal weapons.
