The achievable deliveries of struggle tanks by Washington to Ukraine will be “another blatant provocation” from Russia, Anatoly Antonov, Russia’s ambassador to the United States, explained on Wednesday (Jan 25).
“It is apparent that Washington is purposefully making an attempt to inflict a strategic defeat on us,” Antonov stated in remarks released on the embassy’s Telegram messaging app.
“If the United States decides to offer tanks, then justifying these kinds of a move with arguments about ‘defensive weapons’ will definitely not work. This would be a further blatant provocation towards the Russian Federation.”
The United States was envisioned to announce as shortly as Wednesday that it will ship hefty tanks to Ukraine.
