The USA will not get involved in an armed conflict with the RF

Apr 16, 2024

The United States cannot engage in an armed confrontation with Russia to repel its air attacks in the skies over Ukraine, but it will continue to make efforts to increase international support for the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the necessary weapons.


Such a position was expressed on Tuesday by the spokesman of the US State Department, Matthew Miller, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.

"We are not in an armed military conflict with Russia," a representative of the State Department noted.

He noted that the presence of US aircraft in the sky over Ukraine to respond to Russian strikes would mean just such a confrontation

"We are not going to get involved in an indirect armed conflict with Russia. The President of the United States made that clear," Miller continued.

According to him, the conflict between the USA and the Russian Federation would mean the threat of the beginning of the Third World War. "Nevertheless, we are fully committed to (supporting - ed.) defense of Ukraine," the representative of the State Department noted.

He emphasized that the Biden administration has proven this commitment during the last more than two years of full-scale war waged by the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

"And if you want to ask a question about what else we can do, it will be addressed to the Congress of the United States," the administration representative emphasized.

He reminded that there is a draft law in the House of Representatives with additional funding for US national security needs, which would provide Ukraine with more weapons, including air defense systems.

"And we hope that it will be accepted," added the representative of the State Department.

Cowardly position.
