US arms supply to Ukraine threat to Russia's interests - envoy

Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov (pictured) on Wednesday expressed concerns about Washington's plans to send another package of military equipment to Ukraine.

"We perceive this as an immediate threat to the strategic interests of our country," Antonov said, arguing that Washington's decision to fund Kiev with weapons makes it a "participant in the conflict." The ambassador went on to urge the US to cease with "provocative actions," issuing a stark warning that getting involved in the Ukraine conflict "increases the danger of a direct military clash between Russia and the West."
