Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov on Saturday warned the United States that it would consider sending Western arms to Ukraine as a destination.
It writes AP news agency.
– Actions that make the convoy an immediate target
Ryabkov is said to have said that Russia had warned the United States that pumping weapons from a number of countries into Ukraine was not only a dangerous move, but an act that made this convoy a legitimate target.
At the same time, he took the time to condemn US sanctions against Russia.
He further said that they had no intention of expelling Western media or businesses amid high tensions with the West.
He also added that they would not make the situation worse.
– An attack on a NATO capability will be an attack on NATO
Earlier this week, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stepped out and warned Russia not to attack the supply lines NATO countries use to Ukraine.
“An attack on NATO territory, against NATO forces and against NATO capabilities would be an attack on NATO,” Stoltenberg told Canadian CBC News.
He further acknowledged that domestic supply lines were vulnerable to artillery and aircraft attacks.
However, the right of NATO countries to supply Ukraine with weapons is enshrined in the UN Charter, he said.
