Russia opposes Kiev’s request to US to place missiles in Ukraine

Moscow, Aug 11 (Prensa Latina) Spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, on Wednesday denounced Ukraine's appeal to deploy US air defense systems in its territory.

The diplomat told Channel 1 (Russian TV) that, with these statements, the Kiev government is showing the provocative nature of its policy in the region and towards Moscow.

Earlier, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of Uncontrolled Territories, Alexei Reznikov, requested, during a meeting with the director of the American Jamestown Foundation, Glen Howard, that Washington expanded ‘the security package for Ukraine.’

He added that mainly through the deployment of air defense forces, including placing US units.

Zakharova stressed that such statements are also a proof of US intentions regarding building relations with Ukraine itself, when the core of these relations is the Russian factor.

She thought that such words meet the interests of the West, as they lead to destabilization of the situation in Ukraine.

To her, the main essence of Western policy in the region is an attempt to endlessly play the Ukrainian card in the context of Russia.
