Ukraine argues for U.S. weapons during Pelosi’s visit to Kiev

MOSCOW — Ukrainian security officials have renewed their request for U.S. weapons while meeting with a visiting congressional delegation headed by House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

The United States has provided training and nonlethal aid to Ukraine, but has stopped short of supplying any offensive weapons to the Ukrainian armed forces for their fight against Russian-backed separatists in the east of the country.
