Ukrainian President Thanks Trump for Supplying Arms to Ukrainian Forces

In a tweet Tuesday afternoon, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko thanked President Trump and his Cabinet for supplying arms to the Eastern European country in its fight against Russian occupation of its territory.

Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Defense approved the sale of lethal weaponry to Ukrainian armed forces. Ukraine has been seeking to obtain weaponry from U.S. suppliers ever since Russian forces occupied the Crimean peninsula and supplied logistics to a pro-Russia insurgency in Eastern Ukraine.

Poroshenko expressed his thanks to Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Twitter:

The Obama administration did not send weaponry to the Ukrainian fight, and former Vice President Joe Biden praised Trump’s decision to help Kiev earlier this year.
