MOSCOW: ‘ US Lethal Weapons Deliveries to Kiev Would Undermine Minsk Agreements on Peace Resolution ‘

#AceNewsServices – MOSCOW- October 09 (RIA Novosti) – Potential US deliveries of lethal weaponry to Kiev would undermine agreements on the peaceful resolution of the current crisis in eastern Ukraine, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

“All agreements that have been recently reached – those in Minsk on September 5 and 19 – clearly stipulate the necessity of a ceasefire, withdrawal of heavy weaponry and concrete steps in disarmament, rather than boosting up the strength of Kiev-led forces,” spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said at a news briefing in Moscow.

“This [US arms supplies] is not something that is needed to ensure political settlement in Ukraine,” the diplomat said.
