The U.S. will send medical supplies, helmets and other non-lethal aid to the Ukrainian military in response to Russia’s “dangerously irresponsible” efforts to destabilize the country, Hagel said Thursday.

Hagel said the Obama administration will “continue to review” additional aid requested by Ukraine. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh, File)
