“It is obvious that Washington has set out to inflict a strategic defeat on us,” Mr. Antonov said, according to a post by the embassy on the Telegram platform.

“If the US decides to procure tanks, justifying this step with arguments about ‘defensive weapons’ will have no effect. It will be another blatant challenge against the Russian Federation.”
