The foreign Ministry commented on the possible supply of US weapons to Kiev

Director of the Department for nonproliferation and arms control of the foreign Ministry Mikhail Ulyanov commented on reports of the existence in the United States plans to supply to Ukraine weapons, including anti-tank missiles.

“The plan of deliveries to Ukraine lethal weapons, apparently based on the fact that the situation in the East of the country is not enough explosive,” – said the diplomat.

He also stressed that the links that the delivery of defensive weapons, essentially does not change, as the militia do not attempt expanding the territory they controlled and, accordingly, “to defend Kiev from anyone”.

“However, those circles in Ukraine, who tend to rely on strength, probably would have taken us supplies as an encouragement to military action. The responsibility for this development would lie not only in Kiev, but in Washington,” – said Ulyanov.
