In Russia, they were afraid of the supply of weapons to Ukraine and announced the expansion of the geography of the war
Deliveries of Western weapons to Ukraine give rest to Moscow.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Ukraine "should not have weapons that pose a threat to Russia, the DPR and the LPR." They noted that the further arming of the Ukrainian army poses "expanded geographical tasks" for Moscow. This was stated in an interview with TASS by the director of the North American Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Alexander Darchiev.
He noted that the Russian Federation should make efforts so that "on the territory of Ukraine there were no weapons dangerous for the above-mentioned zones and Russia, as well as the" liberated "territories."
Drachiev said that Russian troops control the Kherson region and most of Zaporozhye, including the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant located in the region.
As for the correlation of massive deliveries of Western weapons to Kyiv with the course and timing of the war, Sergey Lavrov clearly outlined it,” Darchiev added.
Recall that Lavrov said in mid-July that "Russia's geographic tasks now include the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions and a number of other Ukrainian territories." He also did not rule out that "Russia's territorial appetite may increase."
Note that the supply of weapons to Ukraine by the allies unnerves the Kremlin. Ukraine has already received 16 HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) from the United States, in total the Pentagon promised more than 20 such systems. The UK also supplies the Ukrainian side with MLRS. Among other weapons sent to the country are Javelin and NLAW anti-tank systems, Stinger anti-aircraft systems, Starstreak MANPADS and others.
