Kremlin comments on US potentially funneling weapons to Kiev

Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov
Any steps inciting tension along the conflicting parties’ engagement line in the Donbass region will only further drive the parties further away from a political settlement in eastern Ukraine, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

The Russian presidential spokesman responded to a statement by US Special Envoy for Ukraine Negotiations Kurt Volker about the possibility of US weapons supplies to Kiev.

‘We have said on many occasions that any steps that would whip up tension at the disengagement line and generally provoke an already uneasy situation will only further distance us from settling this intra-Ukrainian issue," the Kremlin spokesman said.

Volker who made his first trip to Ukraine said earlier in an interview with the BBC that "defensive weapons would allow Ukraine to defend itself."

At the same time, he said "that's a matter for further discussion and decision." Volker also said he believed that establishing peace in east Ukraine would require a new strategic dialogue with Russia.
