Russia’s most elderly legislator on Saturday indicted Washington of coordinating military operations in Ukraine, which he said amounted to direct US involvement in military action against Russia.
“Washington is basically coordinating and developing military operations, thereby directly sharing in military conduct against our country,”Vyacheslav Volodin wrote on his Telegram channel.
Washington and European members of the transatlantic NATO alliance have supplied Kyiv with heavy munitions to help it repel a Russian descent that has redounded in the occupation of corridor of eastern and southern Ukraine but failed to take Kyiv.
Still, the United States and its NATO abettors have constantly said they won’t take part in fighting themselves, in order to avoid getting parties to the conflict.
US officers have said the United States has handed intelligence to Ukraine to help fight the Russian assault, but have denied that this intelligence includes precise targeting data.
Volodin, speaker of the lower house of congress, the Duma, is a prominent advocate of what Moscow calls its” special operation”in Ukraine to degrade its southern neighbour’s military capabilities and root out what it calls fascist rudiments holding sway over the government and service.
