MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. The US administration’s decision on arms to Ukraine, announced Friday, has a blatant political subtext, and is a step in the direction of the war, the Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev. His review appeared in the Saturday page on Facebook.

“About (or rather perverted) interpretation of the situation in the South-East holds hostage the ambitions of the Russophobic Kiev and Washington millions of people waiting for from politicians in the world, not war. The current Washington decision – alas, once again in favor of war, not peace”, – said the Senator.

According to him, Washington’s decision “is an obvious, blatant, and even articulated political overtones.” “This story, despite the term “defensive” in the relevant decision of Washington to the defense of Ukraine has a very indirect relationship: a Ukraine, no one attack is not going to”, he added.
