Kremlin: US military aid to Israel is ‘road straight to escalation’; Medvedev slams package as ‘Russophobia’

The Russian Foreign Ministry says US House of Representatives’ approval of security aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan will “deepen crises throughout the world.”

“Military assistance to the Kyiv regime is direct sponsorship of terrorist activity,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova writes on Telegram.

“To Taiwan, it is interference in China’s internal affairs. To Israel, it is a road straight to escalation and an unprecedented rise in tension in the region.”

The House passed a $95 billion legislative package with broad bipartisan support providing security assistance to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry says that approval of security aid to Ukraine “will make the United States of America richer, further ruin Ukraine and result in the deaths of even more Ukrainians, the fault of the Kyiv regime.

Peskov is quoted as saying by Russian news agencies as saying that provisions in the legislation allowing the US administration to confiscate seized Russian assets and transfer them to Ukraine to fund reconstruction will tarnish the image of the United States.

Russia, he says, will enact retaliatory measures.

Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, writing on the Telegram messaging app, says the approval of US aid for Ukraine was expected and grounded in “Russophobia.”

“We will, of course, be victorious regardless of the bloodsoaked $61 billion, which will mostly be swallowed up by their insatiable military industrial complex,” writes Medvedev, one of Russia’s most vociferous hawks as deputy chairman of the Security Council.
