Russia condemns the supply of weapons to the Ukrainian side. As Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on April 25, the North Atlantic Alliance is entering into a proxy war with Russia, supplying weapons to Ukraine. He noted that Western weapons supplied to Kyiv would be a legitimate target for the Russian military participating in the Russian special operation.
Arms deliveries to Ukraine have increased against the backdrop of a special operation to protect the Donbass, the beginning of which Russian President Vladimir Putin announced on February 24. The key goals of the Russian military are the denazification and demilitarization of the Kyiv regime. This is necessary to ensure the security of the Russian state and people. Moscow also emphasized that strikes were carried out only on military infrastructure.
