Moscow warned Washington that its decision to send more military aid to Ukraine “increases the risk of a direct military confrontation” between Russia and the West.

Russian Ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, said this posed a “direct threat” to Moscow, describing the United States as a “partner in the conflict”.

The United States had previously announced $ 625 million in additional military aid to Ukraine.

The advanced US armament is credited with helping Ukraine keep pace with the Russian occupation forces.
