A special military operation which Russia has been carrying out in Ukraine came in response to the request of the people’s republics of Donetsk and Lugansk to protect their citizens amidst increased attacks from the Kiev regime.
After Russia’s operation to demilitarize and de-Nazify Ukraine began, the United States and its NATO allies ramped up their military support for Kiev.
Recently, the USA and several Western countries announced new military supplies to Ukraine, including battle tanks, armored infantry vehicles and artillery systems.
In April 2022, Moscow sent a note to NATO member states condemning their military assistance to Kiev, noting that pumping Ukraine with weapons was not conducive to peace talks and would have a detrimental effect on the conflict.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned that any arms shipments from Rotterdam, the Netherlands and Poland to Ukrainian territory would be legitimate targets for Russian forces.
