MOSCOW, 1 Sep — RIA Novosti. Washington is ready to increase arms supplies to Ukraine to strengthen Naval Forces and air defense of the country, the special representative of U.S. State Department for Ukraine Curt Volcker has said in an interview to the The Guardian newspaper. CC0/U.S. Army/Pfc. Josselyn Fuentes / In the USA have said that military aid to Ukraine won't be limited to deliveries of Javelin "Quite naturally that Ukraine increases the armed forces, deals with defense issues, naturally, that she asks for the help other countries, and also it is natural that other states have to help her" — he has told. Volcker claims that the Ukrainian military need deliveries of lethal weapon as they "shoot at them". According to him, Washington is ready to negotiations with Kiev on what weapon is required to AFU. Volcker has also noted that the Navies of the country and also air defense of Ukraine need strengthening. Russia repeatedly warned against plans of delivery of arms to Ukraine, stating that this step will only lead to escalation of the conflict in Donbass. As more than once the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said, arms supplies to Ukraine from the outside won't promote settlement of crisis in the east of the country and implementation of the Minsk Agreement.
