Since Rus­sia seized the Crimean Penin­sula in 2014, Ukraine has been a flash­point for wors­en­ing re­la­tions be­tween Wash­ing­ton and Mos­cow. The Ukrainian armed forces have re­ceived U.S. sup­port, in­clud­ing weapons and 300 per­son­nel, to com­bat an eastern sep­a­ratist in­sur­gency widely seen as backed by Rus­sia. Last month, the U.S. spe­cial rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Ukraine ne­go­ti­a­tions told The Guardian that Wash­ing­ton was “ab­so­lutely” ready to ex­pand mil­i­tary as­sis­tance to Ukraine.
