Discussion of possible weapon's deliveries

The discussion of possible weapon's deliveries America to Ukraine now Vice President Joe Biden has opposed this initiative. The government in Washington to try not to send military equipment in Ukraine. Earlier this week, the newspaper "New York Times," reported, citing unnamed senior government officials, the White House thought about the delivery of lethal defensive weapons to.

It contradicts future of Defense
