Russia Sends US Formal Warning to Stop Arming Ukraine

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Russia sent a formal diplomatic note to the U.S. this week warning that continued weapons shipments to Ukraine could bring "unpredictable consequences."

The note, which was reviewed and first reported by the Washington Post, reportedly specified that shipments of the "most sensitive" weapons systems to Ukraine were "adding fuel" to the conflict. The U.S. and NATO allies have supplied Ukraine with weapons systems since Russia's invasion began. President Joe Biden this week announced an additional $800 million worth of U.S. military aid for Ukraine after pledging a separate $800 million military aid package in mid-March.

The new shipments include armored vehicles, millions of rounds of ammunition, and 155 mm howitzer guns that will upgrade Ukraine's long-range artillery. An anonymous U.S. official quoted by the Post said Russia's warning proves that U.S. military aid to Ukraine "is proving extraordinarily effective."

The news was covered similarly across the political spectrum.
