Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters that Moscow said that the United States’ provision of arms to Ukraine was “not just a dangerous move for the Russian military, but a legitimate target for the corresponding convoy.” He said he told Washington that it was an action to

“We have warned about the consequences of the thoughtless transfer to Ukraine of such types of weapons as portable air defense systems and anti-tank missile systems,” Ryabkov added, adding that these warnings have not been taken seriously by the United States. emphasized that signal.
