New arms supplies to Kyiv to escalate tensions - Kremlin

    REGION  04 June 2023 - 23:30

    New arms supplies to Kyiv by the West will further escalate tensions.

    Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the ‘Moscow. Kremlin. Putin’ program on the Rossiya-1 TV channel on June 4, TASS reports.

    "Now we are already seeing that discussion begins about deliveries, for example, from France, Germany of missiles with a range of 500 or more kilometres. This is a qualitatively different weaponry, which will eventually, let's say, lead to another spiral of escalating tensions," the spokesman cautioned, answering questions from journalist Pavel Zarubin.

    He said that Russia must complete what it is doing in Ukraine.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin devotes as much time to meetings on the progress of the special military operation as he needs as supreme commander-in-chief, Peskov added.

    "Exactly as much as it is necessary for the supreme commander-in-chief to exercise overall leadership," the Kremlin spokesman said.

    Russia must know its line and adhere to it to the end, there is no alternative to this, Peskov said.

    For years Western countries "have been ignoring shelling attacks on Donbas, when there was no special military operation," he added, commenting on the West’s "silence" about Ukraine’s shelling attacks on Russia’s borderline Belgorod region.

    "We must know our line, do what we must and complete what we are doing. We have no other alternative," he stressed.

    Peskov believes that Europe recalls human rights and European values only when it thinks appropriate.

    "Human rights and European values are seen by Europeans as something flexible," he said

    "As a matter of fact, they continue their flexible line: when it is in their interests, they refer to these ‘universal values.’ When it is not, they never do it," he said.

    "There people have been turning a blind eye to killed children, on rows on children’s graves in Donbas. And we heard not a single word of condemnation from them," he stressed.
