UK dismisses Lavrov’s ‘bravado’, says no imminent threat of escalation in Ukraine

Heappey told Sky News that while NATO had been reinforcing its eastern flank, as an organization it was not providing military aid.

“The donor community is not NATO,” Heappey said. “The effort of the donors is something that has united countries that are, yes, many of them are from NATO, but others are from beyond… It is not NATO that is giving the military aid.”

Moscow calls its actions a “special operation” to disarm Ukraine and protect it from fascists. Ukraine and the West say this is a false pretext for an unprovoked war of aggression by President Vladimir Putin.

Heappey said it was entirely legitimate for Ukraine to attack Russian logistics lines and fuel supplies, acknowledging that the weapons the international community was providing now had the scope to be used in Russia.

“That’s not necessarily a problem. There are a lot of countries around the world that operate equipment that they’ve imported from other countries, and when those pieces of equipment are used, you tend not to blame the country that made it, you blame the country that shot it.” “, he told Times Radio.
