WASHINGTON – The United States has changed its policy publically this time as the country is ready to provide mass destruction weapon to Ukraine, the same which portrayed as a reason to attack on the Iraq.
The US Congress unanimously approved fresh economic sanctions against Russia and lethal weapons for Kiev, defying President Barack Obama and hardening American lawmakers’ response to a Kremlin-backed insurgency in Ukraine.
Identical texts of the Ukraine Freedom Support Act passed both the Senate and House of Representatives, but because of a technical issue it returned to the Senate where it passed by unanimous consent. It opens the way for up to 350 million dollar of US military hardware to be sent to Ukraine.
Ukraine has been fighting an eight month war against pro-Russian separatists in its east.
Russia condemns bill due for final approval that would open way for 350 million dollar of military hardware to be sent to Ukraine.
Russia responded has angrily to news that US senators had passed a bill calling for fresh sanctions against Moscow and the supply of lethal military aid to Ukraine.
“Undoubtedly, we will not be able to leave this without a response,” deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov told Interfax news agency on Saturday ahead of a meeting between the Russian and US foreign ministers.
