WASHINGTON, May 1 (UPI) -- More military assets, including intelligence, surveillance and the arming of Ukraine to check Russian expansion are required, NATO Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove told a Senate committee.
Speaking Thursday to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Breedlove noted, "There are critical gaps in our collection and analysis. Some Russian military exercises have caught us by surprise. Getting this right requires more, high-powered analytical support, and appropriate intelligence sharing with allies and partners." He added the current lull in fighting between Ukrainian soldiers and pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine is a temporary quiet.
