The leader of the DPR Zaharchenko panicked because of the allocation of Ukraine lethal American weapons

In the terrorist organization of the DPR, the news about the allocation of lethal weapons to Ukraine caused panic.

This was reported by the Russian media, referring to the so-called deputy head of the operational command of the DPR, Eduard Basurin.

"These money will go to war, they will not go to social payments. They will go clean to the war, that means that the number of victims we can increase," - said the representative of the militants.

He added that he was worried about such a decision by the United States.

Earlier, Petro Poroshenko announced that the US Senate had supported the allocation of $ 500 million to Ukraine, including the delivery of "lethal weapons of a defensive character".

Russians will not feel so comfortable: how shipments of the UAF arms from the United States will change the situation in the Donbas

The Russians will no longer be so free to feel in the Donbass after the launch of US lethal weapons , since they will understand that Ukraine is well-armed.

This was told by "Apostrophe" military expert, editor-in-chief of the site "Information Resistance" Yuri Karin.

"Weapons will help us to react, that is, it will serve as a deterrent, because Russia will know that we have high-precision lethal weapons." "Bad iwans will no longer feel so confident on the Donbass, as they still did," he said.

The expert also explained that Russians so comfortably felt in the Donbass, as corrupt officials during the first 25 years of Ukrainian independence did everything to destroy the Ukrainian defense industry.

Karin also said that even if Russia decides in response to US actions to start delivering weapons to the terrorists of the DPR and LNR officially, little will change, as it has been illegal for years.
