Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov previously noted that any cargo , which contain weapons for Ukraine, will become a legitimate target for Russia. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that pumping Ukraine with weapons from the West does not contribute to the success of Russian-Ukrainian negotiations and will have a negative effect. In Ukraine, the United States “brought to a state of readiness” almost a third of the available stocks of weapons. At the same time, there are currently no contracts aimed at replenishing stocks. According to former Deputy Secretary of Defense for Procurement Ellen Lord, the United States sent almost a quarter of Stinger MANPADS stocks to Ukraine. “This is a serious threat to our security,” Lord quoted the agency as saying. Russia began military operation in Ukraine on February 24. President Vladimir Putin called its goal “the protection of people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” For this, according to him, it is planned to carry out “demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, the Armed Forces strike only at the military infrastructure and Ukrainian troops and, as of March 25, they have completed the main tasks of the first stage – they have significantly reduced the combat potential of Ukraine. The main goal in the Russian military department was called the liberation of Donbass.
