National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said commenting on President Putin's statement regarding possible deliveries of lethal weapons to Ukraine, Censor.NET reports citing NSDC press service.
Turchynov said the "hysterical commentaries" of Putin regarding inadmissibility of the lethal weapon delivery from the U.S. to Ukraine are a proof of "Russia's readiness to demonstrative continuation of financing and supplying weapons to global terrorism."
"The Russian president allows himself to intimidate the U.S. and the international community with alleged "enough weapons" on the Russia-occupied Donbas territories, which can be aimed at any flashpoint in the world sensitive for those who creates problems for them, i.e. the U.S.," Turchynov said.
The NSDC secretary said there had been no Ukraine Armed Forces base for military equipment and ammunition storage in the territory of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions occupied by the Russian Federation.
"All military equipment, ammunition and weapons are delivered to the hybrid troops and terrorist groups of "Lugandon" [the Luhansk self-styled 'republic' - ed.] exclusively by the Russian Federation," he said, adding that the border between the occupied territory of the Donbas and Russia is controlled by the Russian Federation.
"That is why the supplies of weapons and equipment that Putin threatens the United States with can only be Russian," Turchynov said.
The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council also wondered who will be the recipients of Putin's deliveries that are adversaries to the United States.
"There are not so many of them today. They are world terrorist organizations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda, or the North Korean regime that threatens the world security with its nuclear missile weapons. They are the ones Putin wants to arm today, under the guise of self-created occupation regimes of the fake "republics"," Turchynov said.
"Thus today, ISIS, North Korea and the Russian Federation stand on the same level as they are threatening the security of the world, of which Vladimir Putin reminded in his statement," the NSDC secretary summed up.
