The New York Times first reported that the Pentagon and spy agencies were looking at sharing more precise, real-time intelligence with Kiev to enable its military to go after surface-to-air missiles blamed for taking out several of its aircraft. “There’s not enough military equipment that Washington could provide to counter Russian influence,” said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
