Chaly: Ukraine will receive lethal weapons from the next US administration

The current position of the administration of Barack Obama, which is still not allowed to start the delivery to Ukraine of lethal weapons, may be reviewed by a team of the next President. This was told by the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valeriy Chaly, reports UKRINFORM.

«Defence equipment is now supplied to Ukraine and gives you the opportunity to save the lives of our soldiers, and also to document the violations of the cease-fire, as counterbattery radars,» — said the diplomat.

At the same time, he continued, it is no secret that the obstacle to granting Ukraine lethal weapons is the position of the current U.S. President, whose powers expire. «Therefore, changes in the White house give a new look to this issue», — said Chaly.

He also reminded that the U.S. defense budget for 2017 fiscal year military assistance for Ukraine has been increased and «includes the possibility of providing lethal defensive arms» at the legislative level.
