US arms shipments and the Donbass conflict

The TV station CNN quoted sources as saying the US authorities had approved additional military aid to Ukraine totaling $200 million. Accordingly, the US intends to deliver small arms, ammunition, medical equipment and radar surveillance equipment to Ukraine. The US newspaper reported on Tuesday Politicothat US President Joe Biden had previously ordered this assistance to be granted. This is a mechanism by which the US can send “urgent military assistance” to another country from Pentagon stores. In this way, Washington will deliver a radar system and equipment for ships to Kiev.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova had previously warned that the supply of arms and military equipment by NATO member states to Ukrainian territory could prompt Kyiv to attempt to resolve the Donbass conflict by force.
