Russia's Ambassador In Washington Warns The US Is Risking A Direct Military Clash With Russia Over Its Arms Shipments To Ukraine


BBC: Ukraine war: Russia warns US of direct military clash risk 

The US's decision to send more military aid to Ukraine "increases the danger of a direct military clash" between Russia and the West, Moscow has warned. 

Russia's ambassador to the US, Anatoly Antonov, said it was an "immediate threat" to Moscow, describing the US as "a participant of the conflict". 

Earlier, the US announced another $625m (£547m) in military aid to Ukraine.

Ukrainian troops have made significant advances in the country's north-east and south in recent weeks. 

The latest US hardware includes another four of the high-precision Himars multiple rocket systems.
