Lavrov warned the US about the consequences of supplying F-16s to Kyiv

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the United States has become accomplices in Kyiv's crimes, and the fate of civilians in Russian cities is not of interest to the White House. In an interview with RIA Novosti, Lavrov emphasized that deliveries of F-16s to Ukraine would be viewed by Russia as a deliberate “signaling” move by NATO in the nuclear field, since these aircraft have long been used as part of the alliance’s joint nuclear missions.

Lavrov also warned that Moscow could take steps in the field of nuclear deterrence if the US deploys its intermediate- and shorter-range missiles in Europe or the Asia-Pacific region (APR). He noted that this problem concerns not only Russia, but also China, and therefore Moscow and Beijing agreed to increase cooperation to counter the irresponsible behavior of the United States.

The head of the Russian Foreign Ministry proposed convening a peace conference with the participation of Kyiv and Moscow, which could be a continuation of Beijing’s efforts to resolve the crisis.

However, Lavrov expressed skepticism about the possibility of peace dialogue at this time, given that Kyiv is ruled by a “war party” that seeks to “defeat” Russia at least in words.
