Russia has said that Ukraine's demands for the West to send advanced rocket launchers in its defence of their homeland against Putin's invasion goes beyond “all limits and decency".
The US announced on Wednesday, June 1 that it had agreed to send advanced rocket launchers to Ukraine, weapons that President Volodimir had asked for, to tackle Russian aggression.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov reacted stating that Ukraine’s demands to the West regarding the supply of advanced rocket launchers go beyond “all limits and decency" and is a "direct provocation.”
"Such risks [of involving third countries in the Ukrainian conflict], of course, exist, what the Kyiv regime demands so categorically, in a business-like way, I would say, from its Western patrons, firstly, goes beyond all the limits of decency and diplomatic communication, and secondly,
this is a direct provocation aimed at drawing the West into hostilities.
" Of course, sane Western politicians understand these risks. Not all,” Lavrov said at a news conference in Saudi Arabia.
He continued: “In the European Union, especially in its northern part. There are politicians who are ready to go into this madness in order to satisfy their ambitions. But serious countries in the European Union, of course, are well aware of the unacceptability of such scenarios,
and we recently heard signs of reasonable assessments from Washington."
