(Arlington, VA) -- Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says the U.S. will continue sending more non-lethal aid to Ukraine. In a Pentagon briefing, Hagel said the aid includes medical supplies and shelters. Meantime, Hagel said U.S. warships in international waters have an absolute right to defend themselves. Hagel made that statement while stepping around specific questions about some close encounters with a Russian military jet in the Black Sea.
