The House passed resolution Monday that urges President Obama to provide Ukraine with military assistance in its struggle against Russia. The measure was well received in Ukraine.
Ukrainian Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to show his enthusiasm for the resolution:
U.S. weapons sent to Ukraine could effectively assist forces fighting for the liberation of Crimea.
“We do need this precision weaponry and our armed forces in the south in particular need to be modernized,” said Refat Chubarov, the leader of the Crimean Tatars, in a statement reminding the European Parliament that the region still awaits assistance. “The war against Ukraine started with the occupation of Crimea and the war against Ukraine may only be ceased with the liberation of Crimea.”
