    Kiev understands that using military force to regain control over Donbass is unacceptable, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said Thursday.

    KIEV (Sputnik) — Nevertheless, talks on US lethal weapon deliveries to Ukraine continue, Yatsenyuk added.

    “We ask for weapons to defend our country. We understand very well that using our military resources to demand for Donetsk and Lugansk to be returned is unacceptable, but we have to defend Ukraine.”
