    Adviser to Minister of Information in Syria says that US companies in the arms industry sell weapons to Ukraine and other countries to solve US financial problems amid the global financial crisis.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US companies in the arms industry sell weapons to Ukraine and other countries to solve US financial problems amid the global financial crisis, Adviser to Minister of Information in Syria Dr. Ali Ahmady told Sputnik Arabic Wednesday.

    “American companies from the arms industry and energy companies [gas and oil] are the ones that control America’s decisions. It is certain that the world financial crisis along with its consequences push the companies to resolve the crisis by selling weapons to other countries one of which is Ukraine. These companies seek to solve its [US] problems at the expense of the people of those countries [that buy the weapons],” Ahmady, who is also a member of the Academy for Geopolitical Crisis, said.

    In the wake of the Ukrainian conflict, Washington has provided all sorts of assistance to Kiev forces, including military training and financial support. However, US President Barack Obama has not openly admitted supplying arms to Kiev, arguing that US help should be limited to non-lethal items only.

    Recently, certain high-ranking officials, including US national security adviser Susan Rice and NATO’s top military commander Gen. Philip Breedlove have insisted on supplying weapons to Ukraine, but the official decision has not been taken yet.

    Earlier this month, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russian intelligence services have found the United States is already supplying weapons to Kiev.
