NATO’s plans to coordinate arms supplies to Kiev show the alliance’s direct involvement in the conflict, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said commenting on the Ukraine crisis.

“NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said something of note. He made it clear that now not only will the issues of providing Kiev with military aid be considered within the Ramstein framework, but also at the NATO-Ukraine Council meetings,” the diplomat said. “In other words, amid problems with its supply by the United States and the European Union, the alliance is, in fact, determined to take on the role of coordinating arms supplies to the Zelensky regime. It seems that NATO is very open about its direct involvement in the conflict.”

Zakharova pointed out that on February 14, the 19th meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group was held at the NATO headquarters in Brussels within the framework of Ramstein.

“Following its results, Ukrainian Defense Minister Rustem Umerov informed about the launch of a coalition on ‘air defense’ led by Germany, France and the United States, which has been joined by 15 countries. Twenty countries have joined the ‘coalition for mine clearance’,” the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
