Special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker said he believes justified the desire of Ukraine to obtain defensive weapons. He stated this at a press conference in the framework of the 14th meeting of Yalta European Strategy in Kiev.
“Every country has the right to self-defense and as already said the defense Minister Mattis a few weeks ago, the defence of the country its territory is not a threat to anyone except the aggressor. That is, for someone who is not an aggressor, there is no threat”, – he said.
Volker added that while he has no new information on the possible supply to Ukraine defensive weapons from the United States.
Earlier, Walker said he supports providing defensive weapons Ukraine. In his view, the move is not provocative, it can change the approach of Moscow.
