MOSCOW, April 21 (Xinhua) -- The decision of the U.S. House of Representatives to provide military aid to Ukraine will make the United States richer and further ruin Ukraine, Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said on Saturday.

"The decision to provide assistance to Ukraine was expected and was predictable. This will further enrich the United States of America and further ruin Ukraine, causing more Ukrainians to die," Peskov was quoted by Russia's TASS news agency as saying.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Saturday approved a series of foreign aid bills allocating a combined 95 billion U.S. dollars for Ukraine, Israel and allies in the Indo-Pacific. The bills also included measures for confiscating frozen Russian assets to fund Ukraine.

"If we are really talking about confiscating our assets, this will cause irreparable damage to the image of the United States of America. This will force many investors in this country to protect their funds because the inviolability of private property will be violated, especially state property," Peskov said.
