Turkish strike drone deliveries to Ukraine may destabilize Donbass situation — Kremlin
MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. The deliveries of Turkish strike drones to Ukraine may destabilize the situation at the contact line in the Donbass region, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
“We really have special and good relations with Turkey but this case, unfortunately, confirms our concerns that the deliveries of such armaments to the Ukrainian military may potentially destabilize the situation at the engagement line,” the Russian presidential spokesman said, responding to a request to comment on the use of Turkish strike drones by the Ukrainian armed forces.
“We see that as soon as these armaments fall into the hands of the military, they potentially may be used in that area in Ukraine and this only destabilizes the situation,” Peskov pointed out.
As the Kremlin spokesman stressed, “this does not contribute to settling this intra-Ukrainian problem.”
