It is “proof of the direct involvement of the United States in the conflict”Peskov added.

The decision of the United States to send more military aid to Ukraine “increases the danger of a direct military confrontation” between Russia and the West, is the warning also arrived from the Russian ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, who called the aid a “immediate threat” to Moscow, thus describing the United States as “participating in the conflict”.

The United States announced an additional $ 625 million in military aid to Ukraine. The US military contribution has helped Ukraine against Russian forces, enabling Kiev troops to make significant progress in the north-east and south of the country in recent weeks.

We ask Washington to stop his provocative actions that could lead to the most serious consequences “.
