Ukrainian Ambassador: some MPs interfered with Ukraine's attempts to obtain American weapons

The Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valeriy Chaly said that some Ukrainian MPs interfered with Ukraine’s attempts to obtain American weapons, reports Hromadske.

“There were cases when representatives of the Ukrainian Parliament interfered with the process of providing weapons to Ukraine. In response to the question asked by Americans “Do you need weapons?”, they would answer “Will you support my faction?” This included people who are now running for President. It harmed the efforts of the [Ukrainian] Embassy, ” he said.

According to the Ambassador, this is not happening anymore.

“Thank God, now in the Congress, there is already a clear understanding of the support for Ukraine, and there are no more such cases,” he specified.

On April 30, 2018, the United States delivered anti-tank systems Javelin to Ukraine.
