The Kremlin has said requests from top MP’s from Russia’s governing party to ship military equipment to the Donbass show how seriously the country is taking the crisis across the border in Ukraine.
The group of influential politicians have argued it is a necessary response to recent deliveries of weapons dispatched to Kiev by Western nations. NATO seems to be pumping up Ukraine with missile systems, grenade launchers, and other military supplies to attack Donbass.
There are also instructors there to train them how to use this equipment. This is a great danger. It is preparation for military action, and nothing else. Military action against the peaceful population that lives there?
We have waited a long time for a reasonable decision to prevail in Washington, but this is not happening. We only hear about hostile sanctions, and about offensive weapons being sent into the conflict zone in Ukraine.
The MP compared the situation in Ukraine to Nazism and said that it was reminiscent of Stepan Bandera, the far-right Ukrainian nationalist leader whose organization massacred thousands of Poles and Jews in the 1940’s. We cannot accept this anymore.
Vasilyev said that United Russia is concerned about the fates of Russian speaking citizens in the Donetsk People’s Republic and Lugansk People’s Republic, the territories that broke away from Ukraine following the 2014 Western supported coup in Kiev.
Deadly and bloody protests ousted former president Viktor Yanukovych. Separatists there have been fighting a civil war with Ukraine ever since, and Kiev has accused Moscow of aiding them in order to fuel the conflict, which the Kremlin has denied.
We have come to the understanding that we cannot abandon ethnic minorities to the whim of the very hostile US supported warmonger regime in Kiev.
NATO, the US-led military bloc, is arming Ukraine, and in these conditions we must give the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics the necessary assistance, in the form of different types of weaponry, to increase their defense capabilities and protect their livelihoods.
Ukrainian and Western leaders have been warning for months that they fear that Russian President Vladimir Putin is planning an imminent invasion of Ukraine, which the Kremlin has denied.
Moscow, meanwhile, has asked for written guarantees that NATO will not expand into Ukraine or Georgia, a deal that US negotiators have said is off the table.
