Push to arm Ukraine roars back in Senate

Senators are adopting a new tactic in their push for President Obama to arm Ukraine against Russian-backed separatists.

Lawmakers in both parties are supporting a provision in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would give the Obama administration $300 million for Ukrainian security assistance. The provision specifies that half of the funding would be withheld until at least 20 percent of the money is spent on lethal aid.
