Duma slams US for seeking to drag on conflict `down to last Ukrainian'
State Duma speaker assures Washington that it is heavily wrong if it believes that it can be a victor in the war in Ukraine, as Russia is guaranteed to go all the way.
State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin stressed on Tuesday via his Telegram channel that the US would be "woefully" mistaken if it believes "fighting down to the last Ukrainian" won’t affect Washington as it excessively pumps Kiev with weapons.
He slammed the White House for condemning Russia’s airstrikes on key infrastructure facilities in Ukraine and suggested Washington ask itself first if it has done anything beneficial "to stop the shelling of the peaceful residents of Donbass, where people have been living in fear and without water or electricity for more than eight years already." He added that Washington "has continued beefing up the Nazi Kyiv regime with weapons while inciting it to commit more crimes."
US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced last week Biden's approval of a new weapons package worth $675 million to be sent to Ukraine, despite the fact that part of the weapons are ending up in the black market and many are lost track of as Washington blames Ukraine for keeping "hand receipts".
In light of that, United Russia leader Dmitry Medvedev said on Sunday that Russia would achieve all its stated goals in the Ukraine war after receiving a boost in support during municipal elections, promising that "the special military operation is continuing. All the goals that the president, the commander-in-chief, set before us will be achieved".
Assuring that all of the special military operation’s goals would still be met, he vowed that "the Kiev regime will be denazified and Western-supplied military assistance will be destroyed."
