The Russian President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov criticized US plans to provide military assistance to Ukraine. He believes that this could provoke an escalation in Donbas. This was reported by RIA Novosti.

“We believe that this could potentially be a reason for unpredictable actions of the Ukrainian side in terms of attempts to resolve the conflict in the south-east by force. This is very dangerous,” Peskov states.
