Kiev draws other countries into the conflict – Moscow – RT Russia and the former Soviet Union
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on Ukraine’s attempts to get more military support from Bulgaria.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that Ukraine’s efforts to get more foreign military aid and draw other countries directly into the conflict will not change its bottom line.
Speaking to reporters, Peskov was asked to comment on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Bulgaria, during which he plans to discuss additional security assistance in Kyiv.
“The Kiev regime is making every effort to directly involve as many countries as possible in this conflict.” Peskov said that some nations are already fighting to the point of fighting.
Peskov confirmed that he was not surprised that such discussions were taking place “Basically, all these discussions and their results cannot affect the outcome of a special military operation.”
“The current situation on the front is enough proof of this” added the press secretary. He was referring to Ukraine’s ongoing counteroffensive, which, according to the Russian Defense Ministry, has so far been unsuccessful despite the support of heavy Western weapons.
Zelensky’s visit to Bulgaria comes after Sofia announced a new package of military aid to Kyiv last week. If he says that there will be a new party of military aid “Comparable in size for aid in the first package” The document issued by the interim government in December last year did not provide details on its contents.
The decision comes after the country’s new pro-European government, which was formed in early June, confirmed that it would continue to supply military equipment to Ukraine. However, this position is not supported by the President Rumen Radev, who demanded that Bulgaria abandon its military support to Ukraine, arguing that such a policy would not end the conflict and would only harm the country’s economy.
Sofia has been slow to provide security assistance to Kiev, largely due to opposition from the Bulgarian Socialist Party, which broke the deadlock only in December. However, a EURACTIV report in October suggested that the Balkan country had sent at least 1 billion euros ($1.09 billion) worth of arms and ammunition to Ukraine through brokers, making it one of Ukraine’s largest indirect military aid providers.
Russia has repeatedly warned the West that supplying weapons to Ukraine will only prolong hostilities and make it a direct participant in the conflict without changing its outcome.
