Russia’s Says USA’s Latest Ukraine Aide is ‘Aggravation’


As Russia sinks ever further into their failing Ukraine invasion, their belligerent rhetoric becomes all the more unhinged.

The war was only supposed to last a few days, at most, but has raged now for ten months – most of which the Kremlin has spent trying to keep their troops from surrendering or mutinying and threatening the world with nuclear annihilation should they choose to help Ukraine.

Now, as the US prepares to send some serious new weaponry to the front lines, the Kremlin is issuing another warning to Washington.

The Kremlin on Wednesday warned that additional U.S. arms shipments to Kyiv would mark an “aggravation of the conflict.”

“Weapon supplies [by the U.S.] continue, the assortment of supplied weapons is expanding. All this, of course, leads to an aggravation of the conflict and, in fact, does not bode well for Ukraine,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, according to The Associated Press.

The timing of the comment was no accident.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is slated to visit Washington on Wednesday, when President Biden will meet with him and announce an additional roughly $2 billion in assistance for the country.

The package will include Patriot Missile Batteries, which can generally operate with a maximum range of 100 miles and help target ballistic and cruise missiles.

Ukraine for weeks has asked for more advanced air defense systems as the country faces a barrage of strikes from Russia that in particular has targeted Ukraine’s energy infrastructure.

Vladimir Putin’s increasingly troublesome rhetoric appears to be coinciding with the downfall of his own health, as rumors continue to swirl regarding his terminal cancer diagnosis.
