This was stated by Department of State spokesperson Heather Nauert at a briefing on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports.
Ms. Nauert was responding to a question about possible deliveries of defensive weapons to Ukraine.
"Sometimes the headline writers - you all would know this - will get ahead of the story. So there was a headline that implied that we were in the process of doing what you just described. We are not there yet. Let me take out the word "yet." We are not there. The United States has not provided defensive weapons nor have we ruled it out to provide to the Ukrainians," Nauert said.
Earlier, new U.S. Envoy for Ukraine Kurt Volker told BBC that Washington was actively reviewing whether to send weapons to help Ukrainians fighting against Russian-backed rebels.
