Alexi Pushkov, a top Russian MP and close friend of Vladimir Putin, has told the European Parliament that the United States supplying the Ukranian government with weapons could escalate the conflict to ‘all out war’.
The Tass news agency quoted him as saying that American weapons could:
“expand the war and turn it into a real threat to the whole European security system”
According to the BBC he continued:
“First they sent weapons, then they sent military advisers, then troops to protect military advisers, then troops to fight the Vietnamese.”
He warned that it was “an extremely dangerous path” and that “there are a lot of people in the US who still want to fight everywhere”, including “trigger-happy” Republican Senator John McCain.
A further warning came from Mr Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who said on Tuesday that plans to arm Kiev’s forces were “aimed at destabilising the situation in Ukraine”.
This is the bluntest warning yet that has come out of Moscow regarding the United States current and future involvement in the conflict.
