US Senator, member of the Committee on Armed Forces James Inhof sent a letter to US President Dmitry Stream calling for Ukraine to agree on the provision of Ukraine's defense-related lethal weapons
This is reported by the embassy of Ukraine in the United States, reports Tsensor. NET.

In his letter, Senator Inof recalls the two-party appeal of 27 senators at the beginning of 2017 during the transitional administration, in which US lawmakers called on President Donald Trump to expand the amount of defense aid to Ukraine and provide it with lethal weapons.

James Inhof notes that Russia's capture of part of the Ukrainian lands has become unprecedented in modern history: "Since then, the constant aggression of Russia and its constant refusal to respect the territorial integrity of Ukraine requires us - those who respect the legal order, the strong answer. in the provision of lethal equipment within Ukraine's support so that it can protect itself and deter further Russian aggression."

The draft law authorizes the provision of Ukraine with lethal weapons of a defensive nature and substantially broadens the parameters of US support for Ukraine in the security and defense spheres.

The document includes provisions that allow US defense budgets to rehabilitate wounded Ukrainian servicemen in United States health facilities, train and train Ukrainian health professionals in this area, and to enhance the capabilities of the air and naval forces of Ukraine.

"This month, we recall and honor the millions of Ukrainians who died of hunger in the early 1930s as a result of the brutal policies of the Soviet era of Stalin's time. The barbaric seizure of Ukrainian land and crops, which led to the Holodomor, or "death from hunger", became one of the most brutal acts of the twentieth century, which turned the European breadbasket into a land of immeasurable human suffering", - the statement says.

The US foreign ministry stressed that they supported the Ukrainian people and "honor the memory of this tragedy caused by the Soviet authorities, and condemn attempts to deny this as a historical fact."

The United States also believes in a safe and prosperous Ukraine, "free from external aggression and occupation, and able to choose its own future."

Previously, the US Congress introduced a draft resolution on the recognition of the Holodomor as a genocide of Ukrainians.

NATO Secretary General: The door to Ukraine is open, but a number of requirements need to be met

The doors of the North Atlantic Alliance are open to Ukraine, but all 29 members of the organization will accept the decision to accept their ranks.

This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during the International Halifax Forum, Interfax-Ukraine reports.

"NATO doors are open, and the best proof is that since the end of the Cold War and to date, the number of NATO members has almost doubled. Secondly, this year we also received a new member. Montenegro joined us in the spring and 29 members joined NATO. Consequently, NATO's doors are open. Of course, in order to become a member of NATO, it is necessary to fulfill the requirements of the Alliance, to reform. and Georgia and Ukraine are now focusing on reforms, modernization of defense institutes, fighting corruption and strengthening democratic institutions, "he said.

Answering the question of the Alliance's attitude towards Ukraine's and Georgia's membership, he emphasized that NATO, Canada, and other allies are helping both Ukraine and Georgia implement reforms.

"In the end, the decision to accept or reject new members will be taken by 29 NATO members. No one else has the right to interfere, to veto this process. Each sovereign country has the right to determine its own course, and NATO will decide whether we will expand or not, "added Stoltenberg.

Ukraine's membership in NATO was supported by the Canadian Minister of Defense Khurjit Sajan.

"Ukraine has no stronger support than it receives from Canada. We have more than a million citizens of Ukrainian descent. We are very sensitive to what is happening in Ukraine today - to the illegal annexation of Crimea, events in the Donbass. First, we must solve these problems and work on reforms in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so they eventually join NATO and become self-sufficient, which is in line with the interests of Ukraine itself, "he said.

Sajaan also confirmed that, provided these problems are resolved, Canada supports Ukraine's full membership in NATO.

"We can not forget about Ukraine. There are 200 of our military. Our efforts in Ukraine are not isolated, they are part of a broader effort, a collective signal of deterrence that is addressed to Russia, "said Sajan.

In the annexed Crimea, a passer-by-chance accidentally found a pre-Christian grave on the beach



On the central beach of Evpatoria in the annexed Crimea the passer-by has found a stone grave.

According to the website of the administration of the occupied city of the Russian Federation, the scientists attributed it to the era of Kerkinitida - the ancient Greek policy, which was located in this place from the middle of VI century BC.



The approximate age of the discovery - the end of IV - the beginning of III century BC, and, despite this, it is well preserved. In the stone box, the remains of the funeral inventory were found: astragalus (playing bones), two vessels and a small coin.



The small size of the stone box gave the scientists a reason to suppose that this was the tomb of the child.

The exchange of prisoners: Putin's new trick has been revealed in Ukraine

By discussing the topic of the exchange of prisoners , President Vladimir Putin is trying to "portray the aspirations of the peace process," and his quorum, Viktor Medvedchuk, pays attention to this .

This was stated by the coordinator of the "Information Resistance" group, People's Deputy Dmytro Tymchuk in an interview with "Apostrophe".

"As for the prisoners of war, this is such a unobtrusive PR Medvedchuk as a participant of this process, more precisely for his rankings and legitimacy in the eyes of Ukrainians, and he understands that if the Kremlin had a good will to exchange, what Ukraine has been saying for a very long time since from the very beginning, when it was stated that Kyiv was ready to change everyone at all, there was enough Putin's team to have this exchange carried out. Now it looks like the PR of the Kremlin in the sense that Russia is not only in words but also in fact interested in a peaceful dialogue around the conflict Donbas ", - he said.

Timchuk also said that Putin uses this tactic in negotiations on the introduction of a peacekeeping contingent.

Our interlocutor believes that in fact we can not understand the true motives of the Kremlin, because we do not know the details of the negotiations with Putin from the United States.

"But we really do not know the true information from the US side, which argues the White House in a dialogue with the Kremlin. Perhaps these arguments influenced the change of the Kremlin's strategy for Ukraine. At this moment, the Kremlin may have felt the effects of political isolation, economic sanctions and all that was caused by the consequences of Russia's aggression against Ukraine, "said Timchuk.

Read more about the exchange of captives and the strengthening of the troops of the occupants in the Donbass, read in an interview with Dmitry Timchuk, "Apostrophe". "Putin is changing strategy in Ukraine, Russia strengthens troops in the Donbas."
