The self-proclaimed head of the Donetsk national Republic Alexander Zakharchenko claims that the US has repeatedly supplied arms to the Ukraine.

Earlier, the Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. officials reported that the Pentagon and the US state Department has developed a plan of supplying Ukraine with antitank missiles and other weapons. Approval from the White house has not yet been reported.

«Attempts of delivery of US arms to Ukraine were repeatedly undertaken. We were shown the weapons that were seized at the airport of American manufacturing,» — said Zakharchenko on Thursday.

Against arms shipments to Ukraine speak for the majority of European politicians. Thus, the ex-foreign Minister of Germany, former Chairman of the OSCE, the President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier said earlier that the supply of weapons to Ukraine are very risky and counterproductive way out of the crisis. The Chairman of the NATO military Committee Petr Pavel said that he sees no need to supply lethal weapons to Kiev, because it «will only increase the suffering of the people.»

As stated by the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the possible supply to Ukraine from the United States American anti-tank missiles, all countries, especially applying for a role in conflict resolution, must avoid actions that may provoke a new spiral of tension.
