If the United States would supply modern weapons to Ukraine, Pro-Russian militants can turn the gun to other Ukrainian regions. This was during a press conference at the BRICS summit, said the President of the aggressor country, the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, UNIAN reports.
“This is a sovereign decision (sending lethal weapons to Ukraine – ed. ) the U.S. to sell weapons or put free, and the country that is the recipient of this assistance. We are in this process to not influence in any way we can,” he said.
According to him, “there are international rules and approaches: the supply of arms to the conflict zone is not going to favor peace, but only aggravates the situation.”
“If it happens in this case, fundamentally this decision will not change the situation, generally does not affect the change in the situation, but the number of victims can certainly increase. I want to emphasize, just to be clear: nothing will change,” – said Putin.
He drew attention to the fact that the militants in the Donbas “have enough” weapons.
“Maybe they (terrorists – ed.) will send in their firearms in other conflict zones that are sensitive for those who are creating problems for them,” Putin said.

He also believes that the presence of UN peacekeepers in the Donbass “would benefit the resolution of the conflict.” Putin instructed the Russian foreign Ministry to submit an appropriate draft resolution to the UNSC.
“The presence of peacekeepers, even you can’t tell the peacekeepers, and those people who provide security of the OSCE mission, I believe it is appropriate and I don’t see anything bad,” he said.
According to Putin, it could be “only about the function of ensuring the safety of OSCE staff”.
“Second, these forces must be in this regard, the demarcation line and any other areas. Third – the solution of this issue should take place not only after the breeding of the parties and the withdrawal of heavy equipment,” – said the President of the aggressor country, the Russian Federation.
At the same time, he said that the decision should be agreed with the leaders of the militants of terrorist organizations DNR and LNR.
