Federation Council member Andrei Klimov said US military aid to Kiev resembles “pouring oil on the fire” of Ukraine’s civil war

Three billion from the US has turned the Ukrainian state into an "anti-Russia" project

According to the senator, the US “helped” before 2014 with three billion to turn the Ukrainian state into an “anti-Russia” project.

“This kind of ‘aid’ is more like pouring oil on the fire of an eight-year civil war near Russia’s borders with clear anti-Russian objectives”, –  Klimov told RIA Novosti.

The State Department earlier noted that the US did not consider the start of military action in Ukraine imminent. Against this background, the US diplomats were asked to leave the country. However, European Union High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said that he saw no reason to evacuate the families of his diplomats from Ukraine.
