It did so in response to Ukraine’s renewed appeal to the government in Washington to supply missiles with a range of up to 300 km, to use, for example, to strike the recently built bridge linking Crimea with Russia. The United States has so far refused to do so because it could strike targets in Russia and draw Americans into the war.
Now missiles reach 70 km
“In such a case, we will have to respond by any necessary means,” the Russian spokesman threatened. The Americans and some European countries have already supplied Ukraine with missiles with a range of up to 70 kilometers, which analysts say contributed to the success of the counterattack.
Ukraine has already retaken dozens of towns and cities in the east of the country in recent weeks. In the video below, we explain with former captain Mart de Crieff how this can be done:
Moscow said the delivery of weapons beyond that would lead to a “direct military clash between Russia and NATO countries”. The spokesman said the heavy artillery shelling delivered to Ukraine resulted in civilian casualties, making NATO guilty of war crimes.
Russia previously increased the readiness of its nuclear forces and repeatedly warned of the outbreak of World War III.
The same ministry also responded to the decision not to invite Russia to the funeral of the late British Queen Elizabeth last week. The Russians thought it “deeply immoral” and “blasphemous”.
“We consider this British attempt to use the national tragedy that touched the hearts of millions of people around the world for geopolitical purposes and to settle scores with our country as highly immoral,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said. “This is particularly blasphemous towards the memory of Elizabeth II.”
Relations between the United Kingdom and Russia have reached an all-time low since the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Because of the sanctions imposed by the West, official Russian figures such as President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov are persona non grata in the UK.
