The US Ambassador to the UN explained why States do not give Ukraine lethal weapons

The United States does not provide lethal weapons to Ukraine not to provoke an escalation of the conflict in the Donbass. About the United States permanent representative to the UN Samantha Power said in an interview with «Voice of America».

«The White house said that a military solution to the conflict would be catasrophe for all… Doubling the bet and giving Ukraine more weapons, we will get more pain for Ukrainians. Will suffer much more than people», – said the diplomat.

Washington believes that economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure on the Kremlin in combination with successful reforms in Ukraine will be more effective than the intensification of hostilities in the Donbass.

«We have provided many non-lethal weapons. About three billion dollars in loans and other forms of financial assistance. We invest in the reform of justice and antikorruptsionnye program. Time will show that this policy and the isolation of Russia will bring the expected results,» said Power.

We will remind, the commander of the European command of the Armed forces, U.S. General Philip Breedlove called for providing arms to Ukraine.
