 US Should Begin Providing Defensive Weapons That Would Help Ukraine Defend Against Russian Troops – US Senators

Senator Carl Levin, a Democrat who chairs the Senate Committee on Armed Services, and Senator James Inhofe stated that the United States should provide Ukraine with defensive military aid, including weapons.

NSDC Information Analysis Centre speaker Andrii Lysenko said at the briefing, Censor.NET reports.

"Ukrainian people face a heavily armed insurgent force - equipped, trained, and supported by Russia - and, more recently, Russia's own military forces," the statement says.

According to Senators, the United States should begin providing defensive weapons that would help Ukraine defend its territory. Such weapons could include anti-tank weapons to defend against Russian-provided armored personnel carriers, ammunition, vehicles and secure communications equipment. This would present no threat to Russia unless its forces launch further aggression against Ukraine. In other words, these weapons are lethal but not provocative because they are defensive.
