It accused the United States of “pumping the Ukrainian military with weapons and informing on attacks on Russian military and civilian infrastructure,” adding that such policies prove that the United States’ claims that it is not a party to the conflict are “inadequate and false.”
Moscow also reminded Tracy that both Western-supplied weapons and the personnel using them, including US citizens, are legitimate targets of the Russian military. The ministry stated that if the US wants to de-escalate the situation, it should take steps to withdraw US and NATO forces and equipment and stop hostile actions against Russia.
The ministry also called on the United States to provide an explanation for the explosions that ruptured the Nord Stream gas pipelines last September and “not prevent an objective investigation to identify those responsible.” This follows an earlier report by an American investigative reporter Seymour Hershwhich accused Washington of orchestrating attacks on infrastructure, which the United States has denied involvement.
Since Russia began a “military operation” against Ukraine nearly a year ago, the United States has committed to providing Ukraine with about $30 billion in security assistance, including heavy artillery, air defense systems and other equipment, according to the Pentagon.
