UNITED NATIONS, September 18. /TASS/. Western countries’ supplies of long-reach artillery and rocket systems to Ukraine make them accomplices of Kiev’s crimes against civilians, Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyansky said on Sunday.
"Providing Kiev regime with long-reach artillery and rocket launchers makes our Western ex-partners accomplices of NaziUkraine’s crimes against civilians," he wrote on his Twitter account.
"It’s disgusting that weapons supplies is a lucrative business-project for US and UK. Where are notorious "Western values"?," he noted.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a special military operation in response to a request for help by the heads of the Donbass republics. He stressed that Moscow had no plans of occupying Ukrainian territories, but aimed to demilitarize and denazify the country. After that, the United States, the European Union, and the United Kingdom imposed large-scale sanctions against Russian individuals and legal entities. Apart from that, Western countries intensified weapons supplies to Kiev.
