Washington help Kiev with more non-lethal material

Washington is sending to the Ukraine observer unmanned airplanes (drones) and military vehicles to support Kiev in the fight against the separatist uprising in the East of the country, said a u.s. officer, under anonymity.

The same source not specified the timing of the sending of "drones" Raven and Humvee vehicles, including 30 230 tanks.

The decision comes after the u.s. Government accused the Russia of continuing to help the separatists with soldiers and weapons, in spite of the ceasefire agreement of Minsk.

"We confirm that in recent days, tanks, armored vehicles, heavy artillery and Russian border now ratchets in Eastern Ukraine and were delivered to the separatists," said under Secretary of State for Europe, Victoria Nuland.

In Moscow, Mikhail Ulyanov, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said, this Wednesday, that Russia has the right to move nuclear weaponry to the Crimean Peninsula, attached last year, although there are no plans to do so.
