MOSCOW, April 24. /TASS/. Russia is very concerned over reports the United States intends to provide advanced military hardware to Kiev, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
"Of particular concern are reports of the US intentions to hand over advanced military hardware to Kiev directly or through mediators," Lukashevich said.
The diplomat pointed out that the just started crash courses for Ukrainian military at a proving ground near Lviv "merely pour oil on the fire of the intra-Ukrainian armed conflict."
The Ukraine Freedom Support Act adopted by the US Congress in late last year allows and even encourages such supplies, Lukashevich reminded.
Around 300 US paratroopers arrived in western Ukraine’s Lvov on April 17 to train Ukrainian servicemen to conduct combat actions, Kiev’s military operation spokesman, Andrey Lysenko, said.
Some 900 members of Ukraine’s national guard will participate in the exercises. There will be three rounds of training of 300 Ukraine’s national guard troops, and each of the period will last for 8 weeks. Then the joint exercises will take place that will involve the national guard units, battalions Azov, Kulchitsky, Yaguar, Omega and other units from Kiev, Kharkiv, Zaporizhia, Odessa, Lviv, Ivano-Frankovsk and Vinnitsa.
