The Russian Foreign Ministry told about the consequences of the U.S. military assistance to Ukraine

United States military assistance to Kiev could create conditions for the intensification of the conflict in Donbas. This opinion was expressed by an unnamed source in the Russian Foreign Ministry to a Russian publication.

We shall remind you that earlier a group of senators from the Republican and Democratic Parties of the USA came up with an initiative to allocate annually 300 million dollars to Ukraine for military assistance, including for the purchase of lethal weapons.

“We have repeatedly said that in the conditions of the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine, the supply of weapons, military equipment, let alone lethal weapons, in no way contributes to its settlement, but is a factor that preserves this conflict and, moreover, creates conditions for its intensification”, –  the source stressed.
