MOSCOW, February 10. /TASS/. Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev believes that the United States would confirm it is a party to the armed conflict in Ukraine if it began arms supplies to Kiev.
Patrushev recalled US President Barack Obama’s statement to the effect Washington had been involved in the state coup in Ukraine referred to by the US leader as "power transition" and that US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland has repeatedly said that Washington over the past 12 years had spent more than $5 billion on the so-called democratic reform in the Ukrainian society.
The US Administration is currently considering the possibility of weapons supplies to Ukraine. According to US President Barack Obama, the final decision has not been made yet but all options are being considered.
The official noted that US arms supplies to Ukraine would lead to escalation of the conflict. "Russia adheres to its original stance for settling the conflict by political and diplomatic means," Patrushev stressed.
