A senior aide to Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko said on Sunday that Kiev had agreed at the NATO summit in Wales on the provision of weapons and military advisers from five NATO member states:
- “At the NATO summit agreements were reached on the provision of military advisers and supplies of modern armaments from the United States, France, Italy, Poland and Norway,” Poroshenko aide Yuri Lytsenko said on his Facebook page.
But four of the five swiftly denied any such deal had been reached
- NATO officials have previously said the alliance will not send arms to non-member Ukraine, but have also said individual allies may do so if they wish.
- A NATO official contacted by Reuters on Sunday on the Lytsenko comment reiterated this policy
