US weighs request for military aid from Ukraine

The requests cover a range of both lethal and non-lethal aid, including intelligence support, ammunition and weapons, administration officials said. The appeal to the Pentagon coincided with a visit to the United States by the country’s new premier, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, who addressed an emergency session of the UN Security Council on Thursday. President Barack Obama’s administration has denounced Russia’s intervention in Ukraine but has virtually ruled out military action while trying to promote a diplomatic solution to the crisis.
