Russia to consider US and NATO vehicles carrying weapons in Ukraine as legitimate military targets

“We are warning that we will consider US-NATO transports with weapons moving through the Ukrainian territory as legitimate military targets,” Ryabkov said.

Sergei Ryabkov, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affaris, stated that Russia considers US and NATO vehicles transporting weapons in Ukraine as legitimate military targets. 

On March 9, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg warned Russia against attacking Ukraine’s supply chains. Any attack that Russia could conduct targeting the supply chains of NATO member countries that support Ukraine with weapons and ammunition would trigger the self-defense clause.

Earlier, the US Department of Defense reported that Ukraine had already received most of the weapons from the announced $800-million package. According to a Pentagon spokesman, Ukraine also received a significant number of Switchblade kamikaze drones.

According to the White House, the total volume of US military assistance to Ukraine since February 24 is estimated at $1.7 billion; from January 2021 — at $2.4 billion.
