In LNR called the idea of U.S. military assistance to Ukraine by fomenting war

The initiative of us senators about the allocation of military assistance to Ukraine testifies to the escalation of the conflict in the Donbass, said the representative of the self-proclaimed Luhansk national Republic in the political subgroup Rodion Miroshnik.

Earlier, a group of senators of the Republican and Democratic party, introduced a bill providing for an annual allocation of $ 300 million to Ukraine for military assistance, including the provision of lethal weapons.

In his opinion, we must remember that "inciting conflict" the Americans "takes place in the zone of strategic interests of Russia." "And Russia has the full right to open the symmetric and adequate actions to protect Russian-speaking citizens of Ukraine and citizens of Russia, which in the Donbas is already enough," said Miroshnik.

The Ukrainian authorities in April 2014 began a military operation against the breakaway LC and the DNI, which declared independence after a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. According to the latest UN victims of the conflict were about 13 thousand people. The settlement of the situation in the Donbass is discussed, including during meetings in Minsk the contact group, which from September 2014 adopted three documents regulating the steps to de-escalate the conflict. However, after the armistice agreements between the parties to the conflict continue shooting.
