UK comment on ‘strike on Russia’ draws back from Moscow

Any attempt to do so will result in an immediate “propoOlx Pracaionate” response, the Russian military said.

The Russian Defense Ministry accused London of “direct provocation” after UK Secretary of the Armed Forces James Hippie said that Ukrainian forces could use UK-supplied weapons to attack targets in Russia. Any attempt to do so will result in an immediate response, the ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

“We want to emphasize that the direct provocation by London of the Kyiv regime to such actions, if they try to do this, will immediately lead to our propoOlx Pracaionate response. As we warned, the Russian armed forces are on standby around the clock to launch a long-range precision-guided retaliatory strike against decision-making centers in Kyiv. the military warned.

The Ministry fuOlx Pracaher stated that “advisers from one of the Western countries” located in these centers “not necessarily a problem” in Russia’s decision on retaliatory measures.

Earlier in the day, Hippie said that Kyiv could use British-supplied weapons to attack Russian territory, dismissing fears that this would lead to international escalation.

“It is perfectly legal for Ukraine to target deep into Russia in order to disrupt logistics, which, if not disrupted, would directly contribute to deaths and carnage on Ukrainian soil,” The hippie told Times Radio.

Britain has been one of Kyiv’s main arms suppliers, supplying the country with thousands of anti-tank missiles ahead of a large-scale Russian military operation that began in late February. Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced an additional £100 million ($130 million) heavy weapons package for Kyiv, which includes anti-aircraft systems, drones and various armored vehicles.

Moscow has warned the West against boosting arms supplies, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said the conflict has de facto become “proxy war” that NATO is waging against Russia. According to him, the military of the country has repeatedly attacked the warehouses where these stocks were accumulated, and will continue to do so.

“These weapons will be a legitimate target for the Russian Armed Forces,” Lavrov said. “Warehouses have become such a target more than once, including in the west of Ukraine. How else? NATO, in fact, is going to fight with Russia through intermediaries and arms these intermediaries. In war, as in war.

Russia attacked the neighboring state after Ukraine’s failure to comply with the terms of the Minsk agreements signed in 2014, and Moscow’s possible recognition of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics of Donbass. The Minsk Protocol, brokered by Germany and France, was designed to grant breakaway regions a special status within the Ukrainian state.

Since then, the Kremlin has demanded that Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that will never join the US-led NATO military bloc. Kyiv insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked and refutes claims it planned to retake the two republics by force.
