BRUSSELS, February 6. /TASS/. Danish Defense Minister Nicolai Wammen spoke on Thursday against weapons supplies to Ukraine.
Denmark at the moment has no plans to supply weapons for Ukrainian forces, the minister said at a NATO defense ministerial meeting in Brussels on Thursday, stressing that Ukraine needs a political solution.
He welcomed the initiative of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, who have visited Ukraine and will visit Moscow on Friday to discuss a new peace plan for Ukraine.
Earlier, Danish Foreign Minister Martin Lidegaard also came out against weapons supplies to Ukraine.
The New York Times newspaper said on Sunday the Unites States considered supplying arms to Ukrainian forces. NATO’s military commander, Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, now supports providing defensive weapons and equipment to Kiev’s beleaguered forces, and an array of administration and military officials appear to be edging toward that position, the newspaper said. "President Obama has made no decisions on providing such lethal assistance. But after a series of striking reversals that Ukraine’s forces have suffered in recent weeks, the Obama administration is taking a fresh look at the question of military aid," the New York Times said.
