    Breaking: US sends tons of weapons to Ukraine; Russia says West trying to ‘suppress’ it

    A US cargo ship has docked in Ukraine’s Odessa port, delivering tons of military equipment and vehicles to the country’s armed forces, says a report.

    According to local media, the ship will deliver 350 tons of military equipment, including 35 HMMWV military trucks, to Ukraine’s armed forces, with all equipment expected to be unloaded on Friday.

    Back in January, the US delivered a batch of newly-made armored military trucks, known as the High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV).

    Ukraine is currently in possession of hundreds of those trucks. Furthermore, the military has received armored modifications and medical ones.

    In March 2014, the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea rejoined Russia following a referendum, in a move that the West branded as annexation of Ukrainian land by Russia.

    In siding with Ukraine, the European Union and Washington imposed several rounds of sanctions against Russia.

    Russia warns against ‘dangerous neocolonialism’

    On Thursday, a Russian envoy to the United Nations warned about the West’s “policy of aggressive neocolonialism.”

    A spokesperson for the Russian permanent mission to the UN, Stepan Kuzmenkov, told a UN General Assembly meeting that “the policy of aggressive neocolonialism advanced by Western states poses a threat.”

    He said many countries “defending sovereignty and independent foreign policy course are subjected to economic blockade, illegitimate unilateral sanctions, while their domestic affairs are openly targeted by interference.”

    “This vicious practice runs counter to norms and principles of the UN Charter, and it should be ended,” said the Russian diplomat.

    West trying to suppress, contain Russia

    Russia President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the West and the United States are clearly seeking to contain and suppress Moscow.

    “A deliberate policy aimed at containing and suppressing Russia is clear enough,” he said on Thursday.

    ‘Psychological war’ against Russia

    An advisor to President Putin also accused the US and its Western allies of waging “a psychological war” against Russia, as a direct armed confrontation with the nuclear power is unrealistic.

    “A new type of warfare… is starting to appear,” said Putin’s defense advisor Andrei Ilnitsky

    “I call it, for the sake of argument, mental war. It’s when the aim of this warfare is the destruction of the enemy’s understanding of civilizational pillars,” he added.

    He said Washington also wanted to alter how Russians think in a “war…for people’s minds.”
