MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russia and the US are in a hot phase of a war because Washington provides armaments to Kiev, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in comments to the Rossiya-1 television channel that were released on Wednesday.
"We are really in a hot phase of a war because Ukrainian Nazis are fighting mostly with US weapons," he said in the comments that were posted to Telegram by journalist Pavel Zarubin.
Lavrov said that the US administration "each time threatens to supply systems that have an ever-greater range and deadliness" to Ukraine.
At the same time, the minister said he believes that relations between Moscow and Washington should be maintained.
"At least, we do not lose hope that the minds of the Americans will wake up, and they will resume some kind of dialogue. We'll see, we don't have long to wait," he said.
