Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov accused Ukraine of inciting a direct military conflict between Russia and NATO. He stated this in an interview with the American edition of Newsweek.
Antonov pointed out that Kiev was not just begging Washington for additional military assistance. They are also trying to provoke a direct military conflict between the Russian Federation and NATO.
The Ukrainian authorities still do not recognize the anti-aircraft missiles that crashed in neighboring Poland, killing two people, as their own anti-aircraft missiles. The United States, Poland and NATO quickly identified the causes of the incident and named Russia as the culprit.
Antonov warned that such an approach could provoke an already permissive Ukraine. The American media, authorities and non-governmental organizations continue to blame Russia.
