New arms supplies from the West push Kyiv to resolve Ukraine crisis by force — Lavrov – World Today News

MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. The West is whetting Kiev’s appetite for aggression with new arms supplies, which will spur the Ukrainian regime to resolve the situation in its southeast by force, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during a meeting. of a press conference following the results of Russian diplomacy in 2021.

He recalled that “the Minsk agreements include a direct ban on the presence of foreign servicemen, foreign servicemen and armed persons on Ukrainian soil. Although there is no ban on supplying arms to Ukraine , there are foreign troops there, and many . There are several hundred Americans, Britons and others.”

“But we clearly understand what plans the interim Ukrainian authorities are feeding, of course. Everything the West does by pumping out weapons creates an additional lure to move towards a military solution in eastern Ukraine, and that is absolutely unacceptable to us for obvious reasons,” Lavrov said.

Speaking of foreign military infrastructure in Ukraine, the Minister recalled the “television image” of military activities in Georgia in August 2008, when “instructors – uniformed officers of the United States Army, white and African American – been seen demonstrating how to charge the anti-tank [ammunition] and other weapons.”
