The Kremlin said Wednesday that any deliveries of long-range weapons to Ukraine by Western countries would not change Russia's military objectives in Ukraine.

"This is a direct course to whipping up tension and to escalating the level (of fighting). But again, it won't change the course of events," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, responding to a question about potential US supplies of missiles with long-range capabilities. Ukraine has urged allies to supply it with more powerful weapons.
