Date:

The Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24 has killed tens of thousands of people, displaced millions, and sparked fears of a wider conflict between Russia and the United States, the world’s two prominent nuclear powers.

Zelensky has been appealing with officials in the United States and Europe to provide Kyiv with more powerful weapons and equipment.

The US should not transfer any additional armaments to Ukraine, according to Anatoly Antonov, Moscow’s ambassador to Washington. A formal diplomatic note expressing Russia’s concerns has been delivered to Washington, Antonov informed.

“We stressed the unacceptability of this situation when the US pours weapons into Ukraine, and we demanded an end to this practice,” Antonov told Rossiya 24, a Russian state TV channel.

US’ financial aid till date

The Joe Biden administration unveiled two military assistance agreements for the east European country, each totalling USD 800 billion, earlier this month. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has requested world powers and organisations such as NATO and the EU to provide more arms and equipment to his country in order to assist it fend off Russia’s invasion.

Meanwhile, Antonov’s comments come as the US pledged fresh military help for Kyiv on Sunday. The statement was made by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defence Lloyd Austin, who arrived in Kyiv to meet with President Zelensky. The money is for Ukraine and 15 of the US’s ally and partner countries in the region, totaling USD 713 million. Ukraine will garner USD 322 million of this total.  

President Vladimir Putin claims that the “special military operation” in Ukraine is required because the US has been using Ukraine to threaten Russia, and Moscow has had to safeguard Russian-speaking people.
