To help the country fight Russian-backed separatists, Ukraine will soon have more lethal American-made weapons.
According to the Associated Press, on Friday, U.S. officials said that the Trump administration approved a plan to provide lethal weapons to Kiev. It is a long-awaited move that deepens America’s involvement in the military conflict and may further strain relations with Russia.
The State Department is responsible for overseeing foreign military sales. It confirmed to NBC News that it would provide Ukraine with “enhanced defensive capabilities” but would not specify further.
