Italian Foreign Minister does not rule out cessation of arms supplies to Ukraine

Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio expressed doubts that the political crisis in his country would allow continuing and continuing the supply of weapons to Ukraine.

“Now I doubt that we can continue to send weapons to Ukraine. This is one of many serious problems,” Di Maio told Politico.

And the Italian minister said: “The Russians are now celebrating that they have overthrown another Western government.”

Earlier, Italian President Sergio Mattarella refused to accept the resignation of Prime Minister Mario Draghi, according to the press service of the Quirinal Presidential Palace.

Prior to this, Draghi announced at a cabinet meeting that he was stepping down as prime minister.

And last Thursday, the upper house of the Italian Parliament held a vote of confidence in the country’s government against the backdrop of economic support measures for the population.

Although the cabinet gained confidence, representatives of the 5 Star Movement, which is part of the ruling coalition, refused to participate in the vote.
