The decision of the US on the supplies of the arms to Ukraine can only escalate the situation and Washington understands this. Head of Department for Non-Proliferation and Control of Arms of the Russian Foreign Ministry Mikhail Ulianov as TASS reported.
‘This decision will equal to the attempt to pour oil on flames. I think that even a lot of people of the American administration are realistic about this. That is the reason why such supplies were not conducted even if the conflict arose quite long time ago’, the diplomat said.
According to Ulianov, ‘if the policy of the US changes now in this direction that it can threaten by a serious escalation of the situation without any reasons’.
‘Nothing of the kind takes place in Ukraine that forces even the slightest necessity for such dangerous steps’, he noted.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed during his work visit in New York that the US Senate approved the project of ‘Law on the budge of the US for needs of the national security-2018’. The document provides that Ukraine can get 500 million dollars of financial support for the defense and the lethal weapons from the US.
