Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Riabkov said Wednesday that expanding supplies to Ukraine of weaponry, including long-range weaponry, increases the risks of a direct clash between Russia and the United States.

“All arms supplies, which continue and are growing, increase the risks of such a development,” Riabkov was quoted by RIA Novosti as responding to a question on whether Washington’s decision to provide Kyiv with missile launcher systems increases the risk of a direct clash between Russia and the United States.

The deputy minister criticized the new $700 million U.S. military aid package to Ukraine, which, according to U.S. government sources, includes High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems.

“We assess this in a totally negative way, because attempts to present this decision as containing ‘restrictions’ are worthless,” he stressed, alluding to President Joe Biden’s words about his country not encouraging or allowing Ukraine to attack beyond its borders.

Riyabkov said that “it is clear that the United States, leading a group of countries, is stuffing the Kyiv regime with weapons,” and added, “juggling and manipulations with some aspects of what is happening do not change the overall picture for us.”

Next Friday will mark the 100th day of the large-scale invasion, with the use of aircraft, tanks, artillery, missiles, and numerous troops, launched by Russian President Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.
