Kremlin warns US against supplying lethal weapons to Ukraine: Avoid activities that may provoke tensions


Any country, especially that aiming at regulatory role in a conflict, should avoid activities that might provoke a new level of tensions.

This was stated by press secretary of Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, Censor.NET reports citing RIA Novosti.

Commenting on reports of possible deliveries of anti-tank missiles from U.S. to Ukraine and answering a question whether Moscow was going to initiate any talks with Washington regarding anti-tank missile delivery and whether it would support self-styled republics of the Donbas as a retaliation, Peskov said:

"Geopolitical thoughts should not be a reason for commenting. Our stance is well known: we believe that any country, especially those aiming at taking regulatory role, should avoid any activity that might provoke another level of tensions in a complicated region," Putin's spokesperson said.
