The Russian embassy in Washington says that the US should reaffirm its interest in the diplomatic resolution of tensions around Ukraine by refusing to supply weapons to the country.
"If the US is truly committed to diplomatic efforts to resolve the Ukrainian conflict, it should abandon plans to supply new batches of weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the embassy said on Facebook.
Russia also says that they have ‘no plans’ to further invade Ukrainian territories.
"We stress once again that Russia is not going to attack anyone. The practice of moving troops on our own soil is a sovereign right. We call to end the hysteria and not to pile on tension around the Donbas problem. And most importantly - not to push 'hotheads' in Kyiv towards new provocations," the embassy said.
