According to a report released Friday, Russia warned the US and NATO this week that continuing to give Ukraine “sensitive” weapons might have “unpredictable consequences” as it prepared to unleash a huge ground offensive in eastern Ukraine.

Artillery, coastal defense drones, anti-aircraft, and anti-tank armored vehicles, and Mi-17 helicopters are among the $800 million in security support that the Biden administration stated would be deployed to Ukraine on Wednesday.

As Russia concentrates on eastern Ukraine, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said the defensive systems approved by the US are “representative of the kind of fighting that the Ukrainians are anticipating to experience.”

President Biden approved a separate $800 million weaponry contract for Kyiv a month before the announcement.

However, Moscow objects to the advanced systems that the US and NATO countries are supplying Ukraine with, and in a diplomatic maneuver, this week accused the US of “adding gasoline” to the conflict, as originally reported by the Washington Post on Friday.

The State Department did not react to Fox News’ questions right away.

The US has given Ukraine around $2.7 billion in security aid, $1.7 billion of which has been given since the invasion began.

As Kyiv prepares for what defense officials have said will be an even more severe conflict in the Donbas, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has repeatedly requested greater supplies from partner nations be delivered more rapidly.

A senior US defense official told reporters this week that the US is delivering defensive supplies to Ukraine at “record rates,” noting that it only takes one week from the time Biden signs off on a package to the time it reaches Ukrainian hands.

A four-week delivery time is typical for an armaments package.

“I would remind [you] that we front load. Every shipment has a mix of material on board,” the official said, noting that the last shipment contained surface-to-air defenses like Javelin and Stinger missiles, along with Switchblade drones armed with tank-busting warheads.
