The main associates of trump in the field of national security actively discussing the possibility of transfer of weapons to the Ukrainian military.
The proposal to transfer defense lethal weapons to Ukraine, which promotes the state Department and the Pentagon, points to the growing irritation of the administration of the Donald trump of the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the broader deterioration of relations between the US and Russia.
Currently awaiting approval of the plan on the transfer of anti-tank and anti-aircraft defense systems to Ukraine by the trump and his closest advisors. This proposal is not very different from the one that rejected President Barack Obama because of the fear of strengthening the war in the Donbass. In addition, the previous US President did not want to create a situation in which American weapons could kill Russian soldiers. Theoretically, such a situation can bring the two nuclear countries into direct conflict.
During the election campaign team trump also rejected the idea of transferring arms to Ukraine, excluding this item from the program of the Republican party. But now the main supporters of the trump in the field of national security actively discussing the possibility of transfer of weapons to the Ukrainian military. The final date when such a decision can be made, no. But the debate continues on the background of the planned meeting of the American and Russian diplomats in the coming weeks to discuss the end of the war in Ukraine.
The publication also recalls that the recently appointed US special representative on Ukraine Kurt Volker also supports the idea of arming Ukraine. Some officials in Washington say that it is becoming more popular since the American side is losing patience with the behavior of Russia, but also unhappy that Moscow is fulfilling the Minsk agreements. The purpose of Washington, according to unnamed us officials, is to change the strategic thinking of Russia. And the transfer of weapons to Ukraine could become a lever that will help with this.
