The Minister of foreign Affairs Square Pavlo Klimkin at a joint press conference with German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel, who is paying an official visit to Kiev and the zone of armed conflict in the Donbass, Wednesday, 3 January, said that lethal weapons provided to Ukraine by the United States, will be used only in the Donbass in case of provocations.
“We are talking about weapons of a defensive character. This weapon can and will be used in case of provocations and, as you know, it will not be used in offensive actions, so it cannot be used as an argument, which will contribute to the temperature rise of the conflict”, — said the head of Ukrainian diplomacy.
“If something there and much in that region, so it’s weapons. In Germany quite skeptical about the fact that arms transfers can help to resolve the conflict. But we are still somewhat distant from this conflict, and remain as a country in security, and Ukraine from the point of view of defense sees it otherwise”, — said the head of the German foreign Ministry.
