Military aid package for Ukraine authorized by the US House of Representatives will not bring about a fundamental change on the battlefield - Peskov

The military aid package for Ukraine authorized by the US House of Representatives on Saturday will not bring about a fundamental change on the battlefield, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

“Of course, the money provided and the weapons supplied from this money will not lead to a change in this dynamic. Instead, it would lead to more Ukrainian victims and greater destruction”, - said Peskov.

He accused the US of enriching itself with arms aid for Ukraine - repeating a Sunday complaint expressed by Russia’s deputy ambassador to the UN in New York, Dmitry Polyanskiy.

The Kremlin also sharply criticized another legislative proposal in Washington: the planned confiscation of Russian property in the US. These are unlawful acts, Peskov said: “Accordingly, they will become the object of certain countermeasures and legal disputes. In addition, such expropriation would harm the economic interests of the US, as many investors would think twice about investing there in future”.
