The United States is increasingly drawn into the Ukrainian conflict and is approaching the dangerous line of confrontation with Russia. This was stated by Russian Ambassador to Washington Anatoly Antonov, commenting on the decision of the States on the next “package” military assistance to Ukraine.
“Such a line will not give anything good for peace and security, but will only prolong the agony of the Ukrainian regime,” — he stressed.
According to him, the US decision to allocate $ 1 billion to Kyiv confirms that they do not intend to listen to the “voice of reason”; and are not going to contribute to a peaceful settlement of the crisis.
Antonov called cynical statements by the US authorities that the supply of military products to Ukraine will strengthen its position at the negotiating table with Russia.
“It is not clear how one can, in principle, talk about dialogue in conditions when the only goal of the United States— prolong the conflict as much as possible,— the ambassador pointed out.
He emphasized that the pumping of the country with weapons is increasingly causing concern in the United States itself, as evidence of fraudulent schemes is emerging in the transportation of military products. The weapons that end up on the front line in Ukraine are used by Ukrainian militants to strike residential areas in the cities of Donbass. Kyiv also exposes the whole of Europe to extreme danger by attacking the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.

As the diplomat noted, developing countries are watching US policy “with surprise and incomprehension”, wondering “is it really so easy to throw away billions of dollars into the void” that could be spent on the socio-economic needs of Latin America, Africa and Asia.< /p>
Earlier it became known that the United States will provide Ukraine with a new $1 billion military aid package. M113 vehicles, as well as artillery ammunition, a thousand FGM-148 Javelin man-portable anti-tank systems, medicines and explosives.
