MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Saturday that it seemed the West wanted to deliberately disrupt the recent Russian-Chinese talks by announcing a supply of one million ammunition rounds and depleted uranium tank shells to Kiev.
"On the same day, when [Chinese] President Xi Jinping told me... about the positive aspects of the Chinese peace plan on the Ukraine [conflict] settlement, on that day we learned about the supply of millions of shells to Ukraine from the Western countries... The following day, right before a press conference, we learned that the UK was going to supply shells with depleted uranium [to Kiev]," Putin told the Russia-24 broadcaster.
The Russian president also said that the West was doing that "intentionally to disrupt the talks between Russia and China."
