RIA Novosti

Moscow calculates steps in case of possible supply of U.S. lethal weapons to Ukraine, said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“Of course count,” said Zakharova in response to a question in the program “60 minutes” on TV channel “Russia-1”.

“For many, the concept of the Minsk agreements becomes something virtual, but in fact it is today’s reality. One way or another, but we must do everything to stick to this course”, — the diplomat added.

Earlier the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the us Senate has approved the allocation of Kiev $ 500 million to support security and defence, and that the bill allegedly provides for the supply of Kiev “lethal weapons of a defensive nature”. Confirmation of this statement from official sources in the United States was not.
