MOSCOW, March 24. /TASS/. Head of east Ukraine's self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic Igor Plotnitsky has urged US President Barack Obama not to follow a Congress call for lethal weapons to be sent to arm Kiev government forces, media reported.
"I’d like to note that President Obama has a chance… not to comply with the provocative recommendation of Congress," LuganskInformTsentr news agency quotes him as saying.
By passing such a resolution, Congress had demonstrated no wish "to preserve peace on the European continent, no matter how fragile it is, and added fuel to the fire of war", the report said.
The House of Representatives voted on Monday night, calling on President Obama to send offensive weapons to the authorities in Kiev.
