MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Moscow is likely to keep implying diplomatic efforts in regard to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine even if the United States starts supplying Russia’s eastern neighbor state with weapons, a senior Russian security official said on Tuesday.

"If they [the US] begin supplying weapons, the further escalation of the conflict will follow and it will be only deteriorating," Nikolay Patrushev, the chief of the Russian Security Council, said.

"But I believe that we [Russia] will be following along the diplomatic course," Patrushev told a news conference when asked whether Russia would render to retaliatory measures in case of US weapons supplies to Ukraine.
