“Our (Georgian) officers who were trained by Americans are now training your military. They say that the spirit of Ukrainian soldiers is the best in the world, and if they are given the necessary knowledge, skills and weapons, they will be able to occupy the whole of Russia,”- said Saakashvili.
Saakashvili believes that there is a strong likelihood that the US will end up helping Ukraine. “They saw the great fight of the Ukrainian people. They saw that Ukraine is ready to defend the democratic values that are so important to the US, “- he said.
Currently, the administration of the US President is considering the opportunity of supplying Kiev authorities with lethal weapons. Thus, for example, a candidate for the post of the head of Pentagon Ashton Carter, when speaking at a meeting of the Senate Armed Services Committee on February 4, said that he is “leaning” towards an opinion to supply weapons to Ukraine in order to support the Ukrainian government. He also stressed that this issue requires further discussion.
On the same day, a spokesman for the White House Josh Ernest told reporters that the US President Barack Obama will consider Carter’s proposal to supply weapons to Ukraine. At the same time, the Speaker of the White House ruled out the possibility of supplying Ukraine with enough weapons as to bring its army on a par with Russia.
Interestingly, on February 6, the current US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said that the conflict in Ukraine cannot be resolved by military means.
European countries and NATO are against supplying weapons to Ukraine.
