Washington is approaching a dangerous line by becoming a party to the conflict in Ukraine, diplomatic efforts to resolve it will not be effective as long as the West uses the Kiev regime as a mercenary against Russia. This was stated by Russian Ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, commenting on the words of US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken that the American side does not object to the use of Western weapons by Kiev for strikes on the DPR, LPR, as well as on the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions.
“The administration continues to ignore the fact that arms supplies to Ukraine lead to further escalation of the conflict. American and NATO military equipment sows death and destruction. Civilians and children are dying. Irreparable damage is being done to residential areas, schools, hospitals,” Antonov said.
He went on, noting that encouraging Kiev to continue using the weapons received from the West, Washington does not realize the riskiness of its actions.
“The patrons of neo-Nazi criminals are coming very close to the dangerous edge, which we have repeatedly and clearly warned about. The United States is becoming a party to the Ukrainian conflict,” the Ambassador stressed.
He also specified that diplomatic efforts to find ways to resolve the crisis peacefully cannot be effective as long as the collective West uses the Zelensky regime as a military mercenary against Russia.
“Our steps to protect the Fatherland will be firm and decisive,” Antonov concluded.
