Russian ambassador warns of direct military confrontation with USA

Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s Ambassador to the United States of America has warned that the current actions of Western nations in relation to his country’s war on Ukraine could be leading towards a direct military confrontation between Russia and the USA.

Antonov believes that the support being received by Ukraine from the West is escalating the crisis and hinted that the consequences of such policies continuing or being stepped up could be severe.

“Western states are directly involved in the current events as they continue to pump Ukraine with weapons and ammunition, thereby inciting further bloodshed,” Antonov told Newsweek.

“We warn that such actions are dangerous and provocative as they are directed against our state. They can lead the US and the Russian Federation onto the path of direct military confrontation.

“Any supply of weapons and military equipment from the West, performed by transport convoys through the territory of Ukraine, is a legitimate military target for our Armed Forces.”

The USA and the EU have been at the forefront of the efforts to support Ukraine’s military efforts without become directly involved. The EU recently approved a major deal to sell further military supplies to Ukraine.
