MOSCOW, Russia – Moscow has warned the US and Canada against delivering arm shipments to Ukraine as it pushes the country’s leadership into new military adventurism in the words of Russia’s first deputy permanent representative to the UN, Pyotr Ilyichev.

The diplomat highlighted that American companies “are already supplying weapons to Kiev, gaining a consent of both the State Department and the Pentagon behind-the-scenes, although officially the US declares that there is no final decision on this matter.”
“We would like to recommend those who are pushing (the countries) to such decisions and take them, to think about responsibility. It is clear that the pumping of Ukraine with American and Canadian means of war pushes the country’s leadership, which sabotages the Minsk agreements, to new military adventures,” the representative said.
“Everyone should understand that the conflict in the Donbass will not be resolved by force, and those who give arms to the murderers will be to blame for the death of people there,” Ilyichev concluded.
