U.S. aid to Ukraine will not change situation – Kremlin

The military aid package for Ukraine authorised by the U.S. House of Representatives on Saturday would not bring about a fundamental change on the battlefield, Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Monday.

“Of course, the money provided and the weapons supplied from this money will not lead to a change in this dynamic,’’ Peskov told the Interfax news agency.

Instead, he said, it would lead to more Ukrainian victims and greater destruction.

Peskov accused the U.S. 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 U.S. bill, passed the House by an overwhelming majority, totals nearly 61 billion dollars.

It is expected to be sent to the Senate shortly, which is expected to be passed and then signed by President Joe Biden.

The Kremlin also criticised another legislative proposal in Washington: the planned confiscation of Russian property in the U.S.

“These are unlawful acts. Accordingly, they will become the object of certain countermeasures and legal disputes,’’ he announced.

In addition, such expropriation would harm the economic interests of the U.S., as many investors would think twice about investing there in future, Peskov predicted.
