Since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, NATO countries led by the United States, have continued to provide weapons to Ukraine and continue to fuel the conflict. The United States recently announced plans to provide Ukraine with 31 M1 “Abrams” main battle tanks, claiming that the move was not aimed at escalating the conflict.
In this regard, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Ryabkov retorted on the 29th that the US side’s remarks are ignoring the facts, and what the US is doing is promoting the escalation of the conflict.
Ryabkov emphasized that the supply of main battle tanks to Ukraine is a “very disruptive step” for the United States. Recently, officials of the United States and NATO have repeatedly publicly stated that “war is peace”, which makes people worry about where Western politicians will push the world.
On the same day, Volodin, chairman of the Russian State Duma, issued a document saying that Ukraine today is a testing ground for the United States and NATO to test new weapons and new methods of warfare. The United States sent instructors to Ukraine and provided Ukraine with heavy weapons, which is evidence of its direct participation in the war in Ukraine.
Public opinion pointed out that after main battle tanks, the next type of weapon that the United States and Western countries may provide to Ukraine is fighter jets. Podolyak, an adviser to the Ukrainian President’s Office, said on the 28th that in order to protect the aided armored vehicles and greatly weaken the firepower of Russian artillery, Ukraine needs fighter jets and long-range missiles that can attack Russia’s rear arsenal. Negotiations on Western countries supplying Ukraine with fighter jets and long-range missiles are accelerating, he said.
In this regard, Gavrilov, head of the Russian delegation to the negotiations on military security and arms control in Vienna, said on the same day that the supply of military aircraft to Ukraine will mark the escalation of the confrontation between Western countries and Russia, and Western countries are gradually involving themselves in the In a war with Russia
