Russia warns of “unpredictable consequences” after Biden announced another arms shipment to Ukraine

Russia has protested US military aid to Ukraine, warning of “unpredictable consequences”.

In a diplomatic note sent to the US this week, Moscow expressed its opposition to the Biden administration’s support for Ukraine, which adamantly opposes a Russian invasion.

The Russian Embassy in Washington, DC forwarded the document to the US State Department, titled “On Russia’s Concerns Regarding Massive Deliveries of Arms and Military Equipment to the Kiev Regime.”

The Washington Post checked a copy of the document, written in Russian and sent with an English translation.

The note came after President Joe Biden announced Wednesday that the US would deliver a new $800 million weapons package to Ukraine, including heavy artillery, armored vehicles and drones.

“We call on the United States and its allies to stop the irresponsible militarization of Ukraine, which has unpredictable consequences for regional and international security,” Russia said in the diplomatic note, according to the Post.

Russia claimed NATO was pressuring Ukraine to end talks with Russia “to continue the bloodshed.” In addition, the document claimed the US had told other countries to stop cooperating with Russia and send Soviet-era weapons to Ukraine.

The Kremlin also listed the “most sensitive” weapons given to Ukraine that “add fuel” to the conflict, including “multiple-launch missile systems.” The Czech Republic has sent RM-70 Vampire multiple missile systems to Ukraine. Interfax Ukraine reported Friday.

Russia accused the US and its allies of violating “rigorous principles” regarding arms transfers to conflict zones.

The Kremlin also said Washington had not considered “the risk of high-precision weapons falling into the hands of radical nationalists, extremists and bandits in Ukraine.”

“What the Russians are telling us privately is exactly what we’ve been saying to the world publicly — that the massive aid we’re providing to our Ukrainian partners is proving extraordinarily effective,” a senior Biden administration official told the Post.

As Russia began its war against Ukraine on February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the world against trying to help Ukraine, saying that “anyone who would consider outside interference,” ” would face greater consequences than you have ever faced in history”.

But since the war began, the US and its European allies have defied Putin and armed Ukraine against the Russian invaders.

The Russians have committed massive atrocities against the Ukrainian people, including mass killings of civilians and bombings residential areas, schools and hospitals.
