Again touting their promises for a military offensive against protesters in the eastern portion of the country, Ukraine’s interim government has claimed direct US promises of support in the face of “aggression” from the protesters.
US officials have been deployed to Kiev in recent days, most recently Vice President Biden, while US officials have loudly cheered the invasion of the protester-held cities as “counterterrorism” operations designed to improve “law and order” in the country.
Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Yarema told reporters today that the military is working on the “liquidation” of the protester groups, and that actions in the near future would show results.
Yarema said the US support would likely become “more substantive” in the event of Russian military action. Despite supporting the offensives raising tensions with Russia, the Obama Administration says they won’t intervene militarily in Ukraine.
