Russian Foreign Ministry has stated the possibility of “new tragedies” in case Washington moves to supply lethal aid to Ukraine. “The U.S. Congress demands that the deliveries of the so-called lethal aid [to Ukraine] start, therefore it is important that the White House and the State Department realize that this could result in new tragedies, and feel the responsibility” said Ryabkov. According to him, the Russian Foreign Ministry will contribute to Washington’s “adequate perception” of what is happening in Donbas.
Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, revealed a proposal made by US Secretary of State, John Kerry, to Russia about the procedure for the withdrawal of rebel forces from the Syrian city of Aleppo. He also said that the two countries will discuss the issue in the coming days. The Russian Foreign Minister added that any armed group that refuses to leave Aleppo will be treated by Russia as terrorists, adding that Moscow will support the Syrian Army’s operations against them. The proposal by Kerry was handed over on Saturday, after he and Lavrov met in Rome. On Monday, Lavrov said that negotiations on the plan are expected to begin on Tuesday morning. He added that the beginning of the talks had been postponed by a few days at Washington’s request.
