Russia warns the United States to stop sending arms to Ukraine.


Russia has sent a formal diplomatic note to the US, warning that US and NATO shipments of the "most sensitive" weapons systems to Ukraine were "adding fuel" to the conflict and could have "unpredictable consequences."

The Biden administration announced on Wednesday that an additional $800 million in security assistance would be sent to Ukraine, including artillery, coastal defense drones, anti-aircraft and anti-tank armored vehicles, and Mi-17 helicopters.

According to a report in the Washington Post on the letter, Russia called NATO and the United States' supply of weapons to Ukraine "irresponsible."

"We call on the United States and its allies to halt Ukraine's irresponsible militarization, which has unpredictable consequences for regional and international security," Russia said in a diplomatic note to the US, according to the Post.

In the last two weeks, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has requested that more military aid be delivered quickly as Kyiv prepares for an even more brutal battle in the Donbas.

A senior US defense official told reporters this week that the US has been delivering defensive aid to Ukraine at "unprecedented speeds," noting that it only takes one week from the time Biden approves an aid package to the time it reaches Ukrainian hands.

"I'd like to remind you that we front load. Every shipment contains a diverse range of materials "According to the official, the most recent shipment included surface-to-air defenses such as Javelin and Stinger missiles, as well as Switchblade drones armed with tank-busting warheads.
