"We will ask for air defense and anti-tank weaponry," - Poltorak on US lethal aid to Ukraine

Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak hopes Ukraine will obtain air defense and anti-tank weaponry should the United States take a positive decision on the provision of lethal aid to Ukraine.

He said it on air of 24 Channel, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"We will ask for air defense and anti-tank weaponry that we need in the first place," Poltorak noted.

However, he found it difficult to assume when the U.S. will take such a decision.

President Petro Poroshenko guarantees the United States absolute security of lethal weapons in case of their supply to Ukraine.
