WASHINGTON (Sputnik) The US Department of Defense is still considering providing lethal assistance to Ukraine, US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter stated on Thursday.

"That is still on the table," Carter said during a testimony at the Senate when asked why Washington has not started providing lethal assistance to Kiev.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a bipartisan legislation to strengthen US sanctions against Russia due to the country’s alleged involvement in the conflict in eastern Ukraine — the accusations Moscow has repeatedly denied.

The legislation, dubbed the Stability and Democracy for Ukraine Act, also requires the Department of State to lay out a strategy to counter Russian "propaganda."

Kiev authorities launched a military operation against independence militias in Ukraine’s southeast in April 2014. In February 2015, the leaders of Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany worked out a ceasefire deal in Minsk later signed by Kiev and the Donbas militias. Despite the agreement, both sides have been reporting violations of the deal.
