Kremlin says the U.S. is “adding fuel to the fire” in Ukraine

 As the war in Ukraine continues the Kremlin has accused the US of “adding fuel to the fire” by supplying military might

As the war in Ukraine grinds on, America has provided millions of dollars in military aid to the war-torn nation. However, the Kremlin has hit back saying this is “adding fuel to the fire”.

This comes as U.S. President Joe Biden announces “more advanced rocket systems and munitions” which are capable of hitting targets 80 km away.

This is all part of a $700 million military package.

“I am announcing a significant new security assistance package to provide timely and critical aid to the Ukrainian military. Thanks to the additional funding for Ukraine, passed with overwhelmingly bipartisan support in the U.S. Congress, the United States will be able to keep providing Ukraine with more of the weapons that they are using so effectively to repel Russian attacks.

This new package will arm them with new capabilities and advanced weaponry, including HIMARS with battlefield munitions, to defend their territory from Russian advances. We will continue to lead the world in providing historic assistance to support Ukraine’s fight for freedom.”

A top U.S. defense official, Dr. Colin Khal says they’re mindful of the escalation risk in providing weapon systems.

“President Biden has made clear we have no intention of coming into direct conflict with Russia. We don’t have an interest in the conflict in Ukraine widening to a broader conflict or evolving into World War III so we’ve been mindful of that, but at the same time, Russia doesn’t get a veto over what we sent to the Ukrainians,”

Russia has continued to accuse the West of engaging in a proxy war by providing millions in military might to Ukraine.

This comes as Russia closes in on the eastern cities of Ukraine, including in the district of Severodonetsk.
