Supplies of Western weapons to Ukraine “prolong the agony of the regime in Kyiv.” This was stated by the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergei Lavrov, in a conversation with the head of the US State Department, Anthony Blinken.

“The attention of the Secretary of State was drawn to the fact that the continued pumping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalions with American and NATO weapons, which are used on a large scale against the civilian population, only prolongs the agony of the regime in Kyiv, prolonging the conflict and multiplying the victims,” — The Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Lavrov also stressed that the Russian Armed Forces strictly observe the norms of international law, and in the “liberated territories” work on returning to civilian life has been launched.

The goals and objectives of the Russian special operation in Ukraine will be fully achieved, the Russian minister told Blinken.

In early June, US President Joe Biden announced a decision to transfer HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine. In early July, Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Valery Zaluzhny announced that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had begun to use them.

According to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznik, the country “passed the test” and successfully uses US-supplied artillery systems. He also pointed out the need for new deliveries of armored vehicles and drones.

Weapons that Ukraine asks for from Western partners can be compared with a vaccine, said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. “It’s like with vaccines: if you don’t help other nations, be prepared for the fact that new strains of the virus will arise that will render your own protection ineffective,” — he said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking about the transfer of missile weapons to the Ukrainian side, called the goal of “all this fuss” the desire to “prolong the armed conflict as long as possible.” A similar point of view was expressed earlier by Lavrov. The minister considered arms supplies by the West “absolutely counterproductive and harmful”.
