The supplies of the American arms to Ukraine will distance the settlement of the Donbas Conflict. The speaker of the Russian President Vladimir Putin Dmitry Peskov claimed this as RIA News reported.
‘We told this many times that any actions that will provoke the tension at the line of the demarcation and generally will provoke the situation that is already not simple; it will only distance us from the moment of the settlement of this inner-Ukrainian issue’, he noted commenting the statement of the US Special Envoy Kurt Volker about the possibility to provide Ukraine with lethal arms.
Earlier Volker reported that Washington is actively considering the issue of the arms supply to Ukraine to help it with the fight against Russia-backed militants. He noted that he does not consider such step as provocative and this decision will help to change the approach of the Moscow to the situation.
