US to supply most dangerous weapons to Ukraine for counteroffensive — Russian embassy

Earlier, the US administration announced a decision to send Ukraine a package of military assistance worth $325 million, containing air defense systems and cluster munitions

WASHINGTON, September 22. /TASS/. The US Administration is ready to supply the most dangerous weapons to Ukraine to "keep the failed 'counter-offensive' afloat," according to a statement released by the Russian embassy in Washington via its Telegram channel on Thursday.

"We have noted yet another US aid package to Ukraine. Washington's constant pumping of weapons and money into its clients in Kiev has long surprised no one. The US Administration could not bring home its ward, destroying his own people and obediently waging a proxy war against our country, without consolation prizes. The United States is ready to supply Ukrainians with anything, any, the most dangerous materiel just to give them an opportunity to somehow keep the failed 'counter-offensive' afloat," Russian diplomats said.

"The Ukrainian armed forces have not achieved their objectives, having suffered huge losses in manpower and equipment," which is acknowledged by most local experts, they added.

"We urge Washington to realize the futility of the non-stop transfer of aid packages to the Kiev regime. The West’s efforts cannot change the situation on the ground. Instead, they will lead to a further prolongation of the conflict as well as to new casualties and destruction. The special military operation will continue until the stated objectives have been fully achieved," the embassy noted.

Earlier, the US Administration announced its decision to send a military assistance package worth $325 mln containing air defense and cluster munitions to Ukraine. Washington has provided over $43.9 bln worth of military assistance to Kiev since the onset of Russia’s special military operation.
