The United States will send helmets, medical supplies and other non-lethal military aid to Ukraine amid fears of another Russian incursion there, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Thursday.
Hagel said he had informed Kiev that President Barack Obama “has approved additional non-lethal military assistance for health and welfare items and other supplies.”
The aid includes medical supplies, helmets, sleeping mats and water purification units for Ukrainian troops, as well as shelters, small power generators and hand fuel pumps for Ukraine’s border security force.
But it does not appear to contain any combat equipment, such as bulletproof vests or night-vision goggles.
Washington had sent some 300,000 food rations to Kiev in late March.
“The United States continues to stand with Ukraine,” Hagel told reporters during a joint press conference with Poland’s visiting Defense Minister Tomasz Siemoniak.
The aid makes up part of a long wish list of items sought by Kiev over the past several weeks, as its ill-equipped forces face a pro-Russian uprising in the east, and the specter of Moscow annexing another huge chunk of its territory after the seizure of Crimea last month.
“The United States will continue to review additional support that we can provide to Ukraine,” Hagel said.
David Axelrod, the mastermind behind US President Barack Obama’s 2008 and 2012 election victories, is to advise Britain’s Labour Party in the run up to next year’s general election, the party announced Thursday.
He will work alongside shadow foreign secretary and election strategist Douglas Alexander until the vote, expected to take place in May 2015.
The party will also use Axelrod’s consultancy firm AKVD as it looks to regain power from the Conservative-led coalition following election defeat in 2010.
“Mr Axelrod will become an integral part of Labour’s team,” said a Labour statement.
“He will also participate in regular strategic discussions with (party leader) Mr Miliband and the Labour campaign team.”
The election strategist said he had been “struck by the power” of Ed Miliband’s ideas and by the “strength of his vision and the focus he brings to solving the fundamental challenge facing Britain.
“That challenge is how you create an economy which works for everyone: an economy in which every hardworking person can get ahead and deal with the cost-of-living crisis so they can plan for the future and plan for their children,” he added.
“He has answers to these questions which will be very potent in the next election.
“That is how we won in the US.
Officials in Orange County, Texas are facing criticism after they unanimously voted to proclaim this month “Confederate History and Heritage Month.”
According to Burnt Orange Report, the vote came in response to a petition from the county chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV).
County commissioners have granted the group’s request for five consecutive years, but questions began to surround the petition after the SCV was granted permission to build a memorial for Confederate soldiers at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Martin Luther King, Jr.
