Ukraine Requests Weapons From US, Is Rejected (For Now)

Ukraine Requests Weapons From US, Is Rejected (For Now)

Shortly after Ukraine found out that financial aid from the US will not be forthcoming (thanks to politicial gridlock); it appears they will be disappointed by the US once again:

  • *UKRAINE SAID TO ASK FOR ARMS FROM US, FLY SAYS CITING DJ
  • *U.S. SAID TO DENY UKRAINE REQUEST FOR ARMS, FLY SAYS CITING DJ

It would appear that what is good for US-assisted Syrian Al-Qaeda rebels is not good enough for the vastly outmatched and outnumbered Ukrainians.

The UN Security Council does not sound hopeful:

  • *DIPLOMATIC SOLUTION TO CRIMEA `ELUSIVE,’ UN OFFICIAL SAYS

As clashes breakout in Dontesk (with a tleast 10 injured):

  • *DONETSK CLASHES BETWEEN PRO-RUSSIA, PRO-UKRAINE SIDES: INTERFAX
  • *DONETSK CLASHES IN UKRAINE INVOLVE 4,000 PEOPLE, INTERFAX SAYS
  • *DONETSK CLASHES IN UKRAINE INVOLVE 4,000 PEOPLE, INTERFAX SAYS

With tear gas and stun grenades being used.
