The Washington Post has reported that the US approved an export license for supplies of ammunition, large-caliber sniper rifles and spare parts worth more than 41 million dollars to the Ukraine.

Deliveries of lethal weapons to Ukraine can “warm up the hotheads of nationalists who want to unleash new bloodshed in the Donbass” stated the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.

At the same time, Peskov noted that there had not been any official statements from Washington.”These reports of the American press do not correspond to reality, while no official decisions were taken on this matter,” he stressed.
