WASHINGTON D.C, US. The United States has put on pause the question of providing Ukraine with lethal weapons, writes The Washington Post.

The article notes, in particular, that after several months of negotiations and consultations, the administration of President Donald Trump has so far denied Kiev what it needs to repel “Russian aggression.”

“This increases doubts about the willingness of the American president to oppose his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin,” the material underlines.

The publication reminds that the Obama administration was similarly concerned that the increase in military aid for Ukraine would slow down the diplomatic progress and could aggravate the crisis.
