MOSCOW, January 29. /TASS/. Moscow calls on Bosnia and Herzegovina to abandon plans of supplying ammunition to Kiev, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
The diplomat expressed concerns over reports of the planned ammunition delivery to Ukraine from Bosnia and Herzegovina, a country in south-eastern Europe that suffered the horrors of a "fratricidal war" of 1992-1995.
Major concerns are that these weapons will be used by Kiev troops to continue the shelling of towns and the killings of peaceful citizens in south-eastern Ukraine, he said.
"We urge Bosnia and Herzegovina’s authorities to give up plans to supply Kiev with ammunition. Such plans contradict the international norms and commitments in the framework of the OSCE (Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe) and in particular, as part of the Forum for Security Cooperation," Lukashevich said.
Lukashevich said such a step, which comes amid the escalation of armed actions in south-eastern Ukraine, "will not contribute to the peaceful settlement in this region and will lead to new senseless victims among the civilians."
