Moscow warns US, Canada against weapons supplies to Ukraine

Russia has warned the US and Canada about the consequences of arms shipments to Ukraine, TASS reported on Tuesday. Shipments of US and Canadian weapons to Ukraine are pushing the country’s leadership to pursue new military adventures, said Pyotr Ilyichyov, Russia’s first deputy permanent representative to the UN. He cited reports that Canada had announced its readiness to issue licenses to companies for arms deliveries to Ukraine. They include, in particular, the manufacturer of hand-grenade launchers Airtronic USA. “Everyone should understand that the conflict in the Donbass will not be resolved by force,” Ilyichyov said.
