However, he did not name the timing of the final decision of the White House.

“The US Department of Defense and the State Department have officially recommended giving lethal weapons to Ukraine,” said Sen. Roger Wicker during the hearing.

“In my opinion, from a military point of view, Ukraine needs additional opportunities to protect its sovereignty.”
