Russia does not want the United States to become a party to the conflict in Ukraine, but Washington has so far refused to hear these warnings. About this on the air of the TV channel “Russia 1” said Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov.
“We do not want an escalation. We want to avoid a situation where the United States becomes a party to the conflict, but so far we do not see the willingness of that side to take these warnings really deeply and seriously. he said.
According to Ryabkov, Moscow repeatedly sent letters and notes to Washington warning that the increasingly obvious and deep involvement in what is happening in Ukraine is putting the United States on the verge of turning into a conflict.
“They dispute this, but the facts speak for themselves, no matter how much they deny or deny that they are not involved in any decisions on the use of weapons, this is all refuted by life, refuted by statements, including statements by the Ukrainian side, to which we draw attention, & mdash ; said the diplomat.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a special military operation in Ukraine. Since then, the United States and other Western countries have regularly provided Kyiv with military, economic and political assistance. The West supplies Ukraine with weapons and provides financial assistance.
Earlier, Reuters reported that the United States intends to provide additional assistance to Ukraine in the amount of $800 million. Last week, it allocated $1 billion in assistance to Ukraine. The package included HIMARS rockets for multiple rocket launchers, NASAMS anti-aircraft missile systems ammunition, 50 armored medical vehicles M113, as well as artillery ammunition, a thousand FGM-148 Javelin portable anti-tank systems, medicines and explosives.
