The Kremlin attempts to intimidate the international society by selling and supplying weaponry to the world’s terrorist organizations. Oleksandr Turchynov, the Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, said that in his commentary on the recent statement by Russia’s president Putin who said the Kremlin could supply lethal arms to Ukraine.
Turchynov’s commentary may be found on the website of the National Security and Defense Council. The Ukrainian official called Putin’s statements ‘hysterical’, saying they are ‘a proof of Russia’s readiness to demonstrative funding and arming terrorist across the globe.’
‘Russian president threatens the U.S. and the rest of the international society: he says there’s allegedly ‘enough weaponry’ in the Russian-occupied areas of Donbas – enough to send it to any hot spot on the globe, which is sensitive for those who creates problems for Russians – that is, the U.S.,’ Turchynov said.
The Secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council denied that Ukraine could be selling arms to terrorists. ‘There are no weapon or ammunition storages of Ukrainian army in the occupied areas of Donbas; so the weapons that the Kremlin sells terrorists can only derive from Russia,’ Turchynov said.
According to him, Russia can only sell arms to the leading terrorist organizations such as the Islamic State and Al Qaeda, or to the North Korean government which currently threatens the global security with ICBMs and the nuclear weaponry. ‘Putin wants to arm them now, covering behind the backs of the fake ‘people’s republics’, Turchynov said. ‘Russia, ISIS and North Korea stand in the same position, posing key threats to the world’s safety, ’ he concluded.
