The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that the initiative of American senators to provide military assistance to Ukraine creates conditions for the intensification of the conflict in Donbass, RIA Novosti reports.
According to a source in the foreign ministry, the Russian side has repeatedly said that in the presence of a conflict in the Donbass, the supply of weapons, military equipment and more lethal weapons to Kiev is a factor that only preserves this conflict.
The interlocutor stressed that the Foreign Ministry views the US intention as not conducive to a peaceful political solution to the crisis in the south-east of Ukraine.
Earlier, US senators introduced a bill providing for the annual allocation of $ 300 million to Ukraine in military aid. Funds are supposed to be allocated, including for the provision of lethal weapons.
Note that the Pentagon also signed a contract for the production of Javelin anti-tank missile systems for Ukraine, Georgia and several other countries.
