Chaly told what weapons Ukraine already receives from the United States

Ukraine already receives operational-tactical weapons, including grenade launchers from the United States.

In an interview with “Radio Liberty” said the Ambassador extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States Valeriy Chaly.

“I can only say that all contracts that exist, are in the framework of international law. And Ukraine, as a country, have adequately met the requirements of export control has the right to purchase arms. The list is broad, but limited to tactical weapons, lethal including. So I’m surprised to hear from some of our politicians that America is not providing weapons. America gives weapons, but this weapon is tactical. Is the next step in deepening the cooperation and obviously more powerful signal of Russia”, – he said.

“As for providing more powerful lethal weapons, it is an individual decision that should be taken by the President, all preparations have been held to date. It is a political decision, and it will be made with an eye to the national interests of the United States. We hope that our arguments that the provision of such weapons before the presidential election in Russia, is very important and will become an additional lever of influence will be heard”, – said the Ambassador.
