Russia Angrily Demands U.S. Stop Sending Weapons to Ukraine

By Isabel van Brugen

Russia has sent a formal note to the U.S. demanding that the Biden administration stop sending weapons to Ukraine, Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov said Monday.

In an interview on state-owned Russian-language TV channel Russia-24, Antonov criticized Washington’s latest $800 million arms package for Ukraine.

President Joe Biden announced the military aid on April 21, pledging to send heavy artillery, ammunition, as well as new Phoenix Ghost tactical drones developed by the U.S. Air Force, to Ukraine.

Antonov told the broadcast channel that sending weapons to Kyiv “does not contribute to the search for a diplomatic solution and settlement of the situation.”

“This is a huge figure,” he said.

Antonov said the Kremlin in its formal note stressed the “unacceptability” of the U.S. supplying Ukraine with weaponry.

“We demanded an end to this practice,” the diplomat said.

He accused the Untied States of “trying to raise the stakes even more and aggravate the situation.”

  1. Obviously the answer must be:

    ‘Delighted to.
    Just as soon as you have left Ukraine permanently, admitted responsibility for genocide and other heinous crimes and paid full reparations.’

    Fucking scum. Mafia land invade Ukraine on some pretty poor excuses, then start whining when Ukraine fight back. Diplomacy won’t work this time, not that Ukraine need to be diplomatic, they need to remove the vermin on their terms.

    • Apparently it is unacceptable for Ukraine to accept security equipment from her allies but it is perfectly acceptable for the invaders to accept offensive equipment from their allies. Where’s my horilka?…

  3. RuSSia should be greatful that only arms are being shipped to Ukraine and not some US Marines and B-52’s attached to them. When RuSSia attacked Kherson and Kharkiv, then even claimed they want the entire south of Ukraine, they altered their original plans, turning the ‘Special military operation’ into an open territorial conquest. The US is free to alter its kind of support as well any time.
