The journalists asked him a question: would the United States support attacks by the Armed Forces of Ukraine with Western systems in Crimea, reports RIA Novosti. Price responded that Washington does not decide the targets for Ukraine.
“Ultimately, it is up to our Ukrainian partners to decide how and where to best use these weapons and supplies to defend their territory,” a State Department spokesperson said.
He added that Washington is in constant contact with the Ukrainian side. At the same time, Price emphasized that the United States does not encourage Ukraine to attack Russia and does not contribute to them.
Arms deliveries to Kyiv will not bring peace to Ukraine, says the Times of India article. The publication notes that the West prefers Kyiv to continue hostilities rather than work for a peaceful settlement. The newspaper calls the United States the instigator in this case, whose military-industrial complex makes very good money supplying weapons.
NATO deliveries of heavy weapons to Kyiv significantly reduce the chances of a peaceful solution to the Ukrainian problem. This was stated by the Chinese newspaper Global Times. If Western heavy weapons reach Ukraine, it “would mean a long-term stalemate” for those involved in the conflict, the newspaper writes.
