Pentagon chief to visit Ukraine amid tensions with Russia



WASHINGTON — The Pentagon says Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will visit Ukraine next week to reassure government leaders that the U.S. does not accept Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region.

The visit comes as the Trump administration considers plans to give Ukraine lethal weaponry, a plan endorsed by the Pentagon and the State Department.

A Pentagon statement Friday said Mattis will reassure Ukraine that the U.S. is “firmly committed to the goal of restoring Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
