Russia to stick to diplomacy if US sends weapons to Ukraine

If the United States decides to supply weapons to Ukraine, Russia will most likely respond diplomatically, Nikolai Patrushev, head of the Kremlin’s Security Council, was quoted as saying on Tuesday.

“If they supply weapons, it will be a further escalation of the conflict, it will grow,” Patrushev was quoted as saying by TASS news agency. “No, I think we will act diplomatically,” he said, answering a question about possible retaliatory action by Russia if the US arms deliveries went ahead.
