The possible provision of the lethal arms to Ukraine by the US will not essentially change the situation in Donbas but can provoke the employment of the military force in other territories. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin claimed this at the press conference as Inforesist reported.
‘It is the sovereign decision of the US to choose for whom sell the arms or provide for free and the country that is the recipient of this aid. We cannot influence this process anyway. But there are the common international rules and approaches; the arms supply to the conflict zone will not be beneficial to the peacekeeping but it will only exacerbate the conflict’, Putin said.
According to him, ‘if it happens in this particular case then it will not essentially change the situation, it will influence the change of the situation in no way but the number of the victims can increase without doubt’.
‘There is one more point that should be considered– the person who cherishes such ideas’.
‘It lies in the fact that the self-proclaimed republics have enough arms, including the captured from the opposing force. If the American arms are supplied to the conflict zone that it is difficult to predict the reaction of the self-proclaimed republics; they can send the available arms to other zones of the conflict that are pressing for those who create the problems for them’, Putin warned.
