It was reported by Lieutenant-General Stepan Poltorak, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, after the meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission in Brussels, Joinfo.ua reports referring to the press service of the department.

“During the meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission, all member countries of the Alliance strongly condemned violation of the Minsk agreements by the Russian Federation and confirmed the possibility of reviewing the issue of granting Ukraine lethal weapon if Minsk agreements were flagrantly violated by the aggressor country,” Poltorak said.
