WARSAW, Poland, June 4 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama's 70-minute discussion Wednesday with Ukrainian President-elect Petro Poroshenko in Warsaw, Poland, yielded a promise to provide non-lethal military aid to Ukraine. After the meeting -- the first between the two men -- Obama said, "I have been deeply impressed by his vision. The United States is absolutely committed to standing behind the Ukrainian people, not just in the coming days and weeks but in the coming years."
Obama also announced that $5 million in night-vision goggles, body armor and telecommunications equipment for the Ukrainian military would be delivered. He is on a four-day trip to Europe, and Warsaw was his first stop.
