We should have received help a long time ago, including both anti-tank and anti-aircraft complexes. But each state individually and, accordingly, the alliance as their union for various reasons still cannot decide on this step ... There will be a decision of the administration (President of the USA - ed.) Donald Trump - decisions of other governments will not be delayed- quotes Pristayko agency "Ukrinform" on Thursday.
According to him, the majority of NATO members look back at the position of their most powerful ally - the United States.
Pristaiko also said that the United States recently decided to provide "certain types of weapons" to Kiev.
We are talking about permits for export to Ukraine of limited amounts of certain types of weapons and parts. The decision on the mass delivery of weapons ... we are still waiting- he said.
The Russian Federation has repeatedly warned against plans to supply arms to Ukraine, since this step will only lead to an escalation of the conflict in the Donbas. As the press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov has repeatedly stated, the supply of arms to Ukraine from outside will not contribute to resolving the crisis in the Donbas and the implementation of the Minsk agreements. The majority of European politicians spoke against the supply of arms to Ukraine. So, the former OSCE chairman, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier stated that the supply of arms to Ukraine is a very risky and counterproductive way out of the crisis, reports RIA News
