If U.S.-supplied rockets are used to attack Russian soil, the Russian military will retaliate against Western targets outside of Ukraine, according to a top official from Russia.
In response to President Joe Biden’s announcement that the United States will deliver modern medium-range rockets to Ukraine, Russian National Security Council head Dmitry Medvedev said, “God forbid, these deadly weapons are used against Russia.” “It will be necessary to strike decision-making centers once our armed forces have no other option,” he cautions. “It is crucial to understand that the final decision-making sources, in this case, are not situated on the territory of Kyiv,” he adds.
According to Medvedev, former prime minister and previous president of Russia, “The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are already coming, and all hope is with God Almighty.” As the war in Ukraine continues to unfold in Putin’s favor, Russian politicians and media figures appear to be preparing for war rather than peace.
The pretext for these claims is troubling. Russian tv anchor Olga Skabeyeva recently opined on the country being “in a real sense” already in a World War, calling for the “demilitarization” of NATO as the United States hands Ukraine $40 billion in aid.Strikers on Donetsk in the Donbas region by US M777 howitzers were directly mentioned by Skabeyeva when she declared that the Ukraine conflict has come to an end, and a new war with the West may have already begun.
Vladimir Solovyov, a tv news anchor who is known as “Putin’s Voice” by some, said recently that due to British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss claiming “she is the one fighting the war,” Russia should “possibly” invade the EU until they reach “Stonehenge.”
Despite increasingly bellicose statements from Russian officials and opinion makers over the role of Western nations in murdering Russian soldiers, President Biden has ignored them. Putin issued a warning to Biden, stating that his weapons deliveries will be targeted as they enter Ukraine.
On Thursday, Putin carried out on his threat when he utilized a hypersonic missile in an attack on a NATO supply line. The strike took place within the borders of Ukraine, but there will be additional incidents like this that will result in NATO casualties, most likely including American service members. Every day that the United States is engaged in Ukraine raises the likelihood of direct military conflict between the United States and Russia.
Given the United States’ and NATO’s vast military advantage over Russia, Moscow’s threats to use nuclear weapons should not be taken lightly. Russia has developed missiles that may penetrate the most up-to-date versions of U.S. missile defense systems. It is not in the best interests of America to go to war with Russia.
