A close ally of Vladimir Putin has warned that the Kremlin could target western cities if Ukraine uses rockets supplied by the US to carry out strikes on Russia.
President Joe Biden announced this week that his administration was sending long-range missiles to Ukraine, backtracking on an earlier statement that the US would not be giving the war-torn country advanced weaponry.
Dmitry Medvedev, a former prime minister under Putin and current chairman of the national security council, warned there would be consequences if these were used on Russian soil.
‘Of course, it needs to be understood that the final decision-making centres in this case, unfortunately, are not located on the territory of Kyiv.’
He also warned that fighting in Ukraine was pushing the world dangerously close to nuclear Armageddon
‘The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are already on their way and all hope now is with Lord God the Almighty,’ he said.
Kremlin-controlled state TV has said on a number of occasions that the war in Ukraine could turn nuclear, with attacks on the UK and the rest of Europe.
TV channels have even simulated how the UK could be nuked in 200 seconds with ‘no survivors’ while another threatened to plunge Britain into the sea with a missile that could cause a huge tsunami.
The rocket systems being sent over to Ukraine will be able to strike enemy targets about 50 miles away.
Biden said it would help Ukraine on the battlefield as fighting intensifies in the east of the country.
The White House said it had agreed to provide Ukraine with the new missiles after receiving assurances from President Zelensky that they would not be used to hit targets inside Russia.
However, the Kremlin said it did not believe Zelensky.
‘The United States is directly and intentionally adding fuel to the fire,’ Dmitry Peskov, Putin’s spokesman, said.
