Foreign Ministry condemns US arms supplies to Ukraine

The US arms shipments to Kiev exacerbate the conflict in the Donbass, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

“We drew attention to the press service of the US Embassy in Kiev on the supply of American arms and military equipment to Ukraine, including anti-tank missile systems totaling $60 million. Our assessment of such steps by Washington is well known, it remains unchanged – supplying the Armed Forces of Ukraine with products of military use only exacerbates the conflict in the south-east of the country, fueling the revanchist sentiment of the Kiev “war party”, – Zakharova said at a briefing.

She also noted that the presence of the US military in exercises in Ukraine is contrary to the Minsk complex of measures, which provides for the withdrawal of all foreign forces from the territory of Ukraine.
