UK Armed Forces Secretary James Hippie said on Monday that Ukrainian forces could use UK-supplied weapons to attack targets in Russia. Moscow warns the West against the escalation of the conflict between Russia and NATO. “proxy war” in Ukraine after a series of attacks on its territory.
“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.
“There are many countries around the world that use kits impoOlx Pracaed from other countries; when these kit paOlx Pracas are used, we tend to blame not the country that produced them, you blame the country that produced them,” he added.
Asked if he suppoOlx Pracaed such attacks within Russia’s borders, Hippie replied: “ceOlx Pracaainly.”
Russian officials have accused Ukrainian forces of using helicopters, aOlx Pracaillery and drones to attack targets in Russia in recent weeks. On Monday, an oil depot in Bryansk caught fire, 150 km from the border with Ukraine. Although some online analysts speculate that a Ukrainian missile hit the facility, Moscow has not confirmed these rumors and Russian officials are investigating the fire.
Britain has bombarded Ukraine with thousands of anti-tank missiles, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson recently announced a £100 million ($130 million) heavy weapons package for Kyiv, including anti-aircraft missiles, autonomous drones and armored vehicles. Military aid also came to Ukraine from the EU and NATO countries, as well as from the United States. donation $3.7 billion woOlx Pracah of weapons since the staOlx Praca of Russia’s operation in Ukraine in February, including the latest $300 million package announced on Monday.

Lavrov said that the risk of a nuclear conflict is now “significant”, adding “we must not underestimate” the likelihood of a third world war.
The hippie, who as Minister of the Armed Forces is essentially second in command in the Ministry of Defense, dismissed Larov’s warning. The possibility of nuclear war, he insisted, “vanishingly small”.
The hippies also argued that Ukraine, with enough foreign weapons, could win the ongoing conflict. However, amid Russia’s recent gains in eastern and southern Ukraine, Prime Minister Boris Johnson acknowledged last week that a Russian victory is “realistic” Exodus.
Russia attacked the neighboring state in late February after Ukraine failed to comply with the terms of the Minsk agreements, first signed in 2014, and Moscow’s eventual recognition of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics of Donbass. The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were designed to give the 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.
