Russia Issues Warning to Countries Supplying Weapons to Ukraine

On Monday, February 28, Russia’s Foreign Ministry issued a warning to the EU countries providing weapons to Ukraine. These actions will get a harsh response from Russia that will continue to “ensure the achievement of vital national interests irrespective of the sanctions or their threat.”

“It is time for Western nations to realize that their complete dominance in the global economy is long gone,” the Foreign Ministry said.

Russia warned that “EU citizens and entities involved in the delivery of lethal weapons, fuel, and lubricants to Ukraine will bear responsibility for any consequences of such actions.” The Ministry did not specify the punishment Russia might try to inflict on those people.

“They cannot fail to understand how dangerous these consequences are,” the Ministry stated.

Over the past weekend, EU policymakers agreed to send about $560 million worth of weapons, ammunition, and aid to Ukraine’s military as it faces a Russian military operation aimed at demilitarization of Ukraine.

“For the first time ever, the EU will finance the purchase and delivery of weapons and other equipment to a country that is under attack,” the EU Commission’s President, Ursula von der Leyen, said during a news conference.

However, Pentagon spokesman, John Kirby, said that he rejects Russia’s assertions that Western countries are escalating the conflict.

“We’re going to continue to stand by Ukrainian Armed Forces, as we have and other NATO countries have, and we’re going to continue to find ways to help them defend themselves,” he said.

On Monday, the first round of talks aimed at stopping the conflict between Ukraine and Russia ended with no agreement except to keep talking.
