Also, 282 artillery systems, more than 1.15 million artillery shells, nearly 2.8 thousand air defense missiles, more than 1.5 thousand air defense systems and 47 radars were transferred. Also, nearly 2.6 thousand vehicles and trailers, 15 helicopters and 30 watercraft were delivered.
The Russian Federation had earlier sent a note to NATO countries over the supply of weapons to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has indicated that any shipment containing weapons to Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. The Russian Foreign Ministry stated that NATO countries were “playing with fire” by supplying arms to Ukraine. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, noted that the injection of weapons into Ukraine from the West does not contribute to the success of the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations and will have a negative impact. Lavrov stated that the United States and NATO are directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, including not only the supply of weapons, but also the training of personnel in the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and other countries.
