Russia: Regime claims US regime “directly involved” in Ukraine war

Source: The Guardian [UK]

“The role of American intelligence in the war in Ukraine has been put under scrutiny after Russia accused the White House of supplying targeting information used by Kyiv to conduct long-range missile strikes. Russia’s defence ministry claimed Washington was ‘directly involved’ in the war, and had passed on intelligence that had led to the ‘mass deaths of civilians.’ The US was responsible for rocket attacks by Kyiv on populated areas in the eastern Donbas and in other regions, it said. ‘All this undeniably proves that Washington, contrary to White House and Pentagon claims, is directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine,’ the ministry said in a statement.” [editor’s note: Seems like an artificial distinction to me.
