Russia has warned the United States against sending weapons to Ukraine, saying the move would cause “colossal damage” to ties between the two countries.

Moscow is “seriously concerned” over discussions in the West about sending arms supplies to the Kiev government, which is embroiled in fierce clashes with pro-Russian forces in the east of Ukraine, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Alexander Lukashevich, said on Thursday.

“Without a doubt, if such a decision is realized, it will cause colossal damage to US-Russian relations, especially if the residents of Donbass (Donetsk and Lugansk regions) start to be killed by American weapons,” Lukashevich added.

The United States said it is considering giving Ukraine weapons to help the military in its fight against pro-Russian fighters.

Lukashevich also warned that the move “would not only threaten to escalate the situation in the southeast of Ukraine, but threatens the security of Russia, whose territory has been repeatedly shelled from Ukraine.”

Fighting has picked up around east Ukraine in recent weeks. Clashes are currently focused in the city of Debaltseve, where pro-Russia fighters are trying to encircle Ukrainian forces.

International efforts to establish a truce in east Ukraine have failed so far with Western governments accusing Russia of supporting the armed militancy against the Ukrainian government. Moscow denies the charges, saying Kiev must stop suppression of ethnic Russian population in the area.

Russia has already been hit by several rounds of Western sanctions over the crisis in Ukraine, but the restrictive measures have backfired on the economy of the European countries.

Deep divisions have emerged between EU members on the need for the adoption of more broad-spectrum sanctions on Moscow, with some member states saying such a decision may take its toll on the weaker economies in the EU.

    Lets see, the Pentagon says Putin is an Aspie. We must remember the Blacks hats must always tell us at least a partial truth. Therefore the definition of Aspie is, while being quite gifted verbally, have social, emotional, and sensory integration difficulties when dealing with stupid chess players.
    Aspie is an affectionate term, and is not meant as a put down.

  3. Station massive mercenary forces just outside Vancouver
    as “Advisors” to the presently trampled indiginous population . . .

    Station massive mercenary forces just outside Ciudad Juárez
    as “Advisors” to México in their fight with the Cartels . . .

    Station massive mercenary forces just outside Stanstead, Quebec
    as “Advisors” to a newly energized Quebec Freedom Movement . . .

    Station massive mercenary forces just outside Guantanamo, Cuba
    as “Advisors” to a finally economically fed up Cuba . . .

    And assume everyone knows these “Advisors” are signed, sealed,
    and paid for by Russia . . .

    Where would the “Empire of Kindness” be?

    Would they just be patiently watching?

    Would they be skillfully using their diplomacy?

    Or, would they have already flown by “Weapons of Mass Destruction”
    and forcefully landed in the “House of Shame,” a “House of Shame”
    filled with vitriol, patriotism, greed, complicity, treason–and a fervent
    Rush to Massive War.

    The Biggest Hypocrites are always the most obvious.
    The Weakest Positions always shout the loudest.
    The Zenith always occurs just before the Precipice . . .
