Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Turkey had been warned not to supply arms to Ukraine.
According to Russia’s Interfax news agency, Lavrov called on Ukraine not to supply weapons during a visit to Egypt today.
Lavrov said during talks with countries, including Turkey, that “the statements of the fighters of the Kiev regime were well analyzed.” “We warn them not to start the fire,” he said.
Behind the warning, the Kremlin said it was concerned about Turkey’s purchase of armed unmanned aerial vehicles (NCV A) to Ukraine. According to media reports, in 2019, UKRAINE 6 Bayraktar TB2 SIH and 3 ground control stations were delivered to Kiev with an agreement signed with Turkey last year. It was announced that the new agreements will further deepen cooperation in the field of defense.

Meanwhile, in a statement today, the United States criticized the deployment of two warships in the Black Sea.
“The question of what the United States wants to do thousands of kilometers away from the country remains unanswered,” he said.
Turkey has announced in Ankara that two warships have made a diplomatic notification to the United States to move to the Black Sea. Turkish media reported that Moscow was also informed about American warships that remained in the Black Sea until May 4.
