The Argentine government has ruled out the possibility of sending weapons to Ukraine but will help the country in the humanitarian and logistical areas, according to the press secretary of the President of Argentina, Manuel Adorni.

He clarified that Argentina would not interfere in the conflict in any way. Argentine President Javier Milei expressed support for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, which provoked a sharp reaction from the Kremlin.

Adorni added that Russia expressed disappointment with Ukraine's support, not hostility. Therefore, the country decided not to provide any military support.

The representative of Milei noted that Ukraine would be offered humanitarian and logistical support.

Argentina's position has angered Russia

The agency clarified that Russia expressed "deep disappointment and concern" over Milei's recent actions and warned against sending military aid to Ukraine.

Russian ambassador to Argentina Dmitry Feoktistov said that such actions would be regarded as hostile to Russia.

The diplomat also condemned Argentina's joining to the Contact Group on Ukraine's defense. The Russian ambassador's statements coincided with Milei's participation in the Peace Summit on the war in Ukraine.

Argentina could send weapons to Ukraine

Milei became president recently and has strongly condemned Russia for its war against Ukraine. The Financial Times reported that Argentina had transferred helicopters purchased from Russia to Ukraine.

Recently, Infobae reported that Argentina is actively discussing with France the transfer of Super Etendard attack aircraft to Ukraine.
