The Russian Ambassador to Washington slammed the U.S. for constantly raising the "bar" of military assistance for Ukraine.

What Happened: Vladimir Putin's representative in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said the Russian military would destroy M1 Abrams tanks if the U.S. decides to supply them to Ukraine.

"An analysis of the entire sequence of Washingtons actions shows that the Americans are constantly raising the bar of military assistance to their puppet government. This is especially clear when the Russian Armed Forces gain new victories and confidently liberate the territory of Russia from the Nazi threat," Antonov said in a written response on Telegram.

"If the United States decides to supply tanks, it will be impossible to justify such step using arguments about "defensive weapons," he added.

This came after reports indicated that in a reversal, the Biden administration is poised to start a process that would eventually send dozens of M1 Abrams battle tanks to Kyiv.
