How NOT to support Ukraine [View all]

Men arrested with firearms in D.C. near embassy tell police they were volunteering to fight in war in Ukraine, officials say (Washington Post via MSN)

Two men arrested with firearms on Thursday near the Ukrainian Embassy in Georgetown told police they had driven from Indiana to volunteer to fight in the war in Ukraine, according two law enforcement officials familiar with the case.

One of the men was wearing military fatigues and police seized a long gun and two handguns during the arrest, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to detail an ongoing police investigation.

Uniformed members of the U.S. Secret Service arrested the men shortly after 9 a.m. at Wisconsin Avenue and M Street NW, according to a statement from the agency and D.C. police. That is a little more than two blocks from the embassy on M Street.
