Poroshenko urges US to provide Ukraine with ‘lethal military equipment’

President Petro Poroshenko has requested NATO give “special” security status to Ukraine. Addressing the US Congress, he called on Washington to provide Kiev with “more military equipment, lethal and non-lethal” to “keep peace” in the east of his country.

While President Barack Obama previously pledged only non-lethal assistance to Kiev, such as bullet-proof vests and helmets, Poroshenko said this would not be enough.
