Chalyi says for now support with lethal weapons for Ukraine is very low

US military aid will arrive soon, issue of lethal arms open. Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Ukraine to the USA Valery Chalyi said this to 5 TV Channel, according to 112.international.

He says that the two countries have an understanding of the security and defense sector cooperation.

'Recently, there were defense equipment batches. I can tell you now, without naming the exact day, but literally in the coming days arrive another batch of such equipment. It saves the lives of our guys on the front lines', said Chalyi.

He also expressed the view that the US is still considering the issue of granting Ukraine lethal weapons.

The Ambassador also stressed the current president and his administration does not support this issue, so before the election date in America on November 9, the question will not be considered.

As reported earlier by 1492news.com, U.S. Senator Chris Coons: No consensus in the U.S. Senate at the moment on providing lethal weapons to Ukraine.
