In the self-proclaimed Lugansk people’s Republic warned US that in the case of supply of Ukrainian security forces with lethal weapons it can be used against the civilians of Donbass.

On Friday, the U.S. state Department spokesman Heather Nauert announced that Washington took the decision to supply Ukraine with defensive weapons to protect its territorial integrity and sovereignty.

«The U.S. decision to supply lethal arms to Ukraine is another step to the escalation of the conflict in the Donbass. In taking this decision, the Western partners of Ukraine should understand that this weapon will be sent to APU exclusively against civilians. The use of heavy weapons during the shelling of residential areas, schools, hospitals, kindergartens, has already become common practice,» — told reporters acting head of the national police LNR Michael Filonenko.

The speaker also warned the Ukrainian command from intentions to resolve the conflict by military means and reminded that in the event of increased hostilities, the APU may lose their new weapons, «as it were, for example, during the «Debaltseve operation».
