As the Ukrainian war continues in full swing, there have been flash statements from Russian President Putin. After Putin’s statement, which intimidated the West, the tension in the region peaked.
The war in Ukraine continues in full swing. The Russian forces that captured Mariupol continue their attacks on other cities in the east of the country without interruption.
While the West, especially the United States, continued to provide arms to Ukraine, Russian President Putin made bombshell statements.
Putin said Moscow would hit new targets if the West supplied Ukraine with long-range missiles.
Putin included the following statement in his statement;
“We will draw the appropriate conclusions and use our weapons to hit targets that we have not hit before.”
The Russian president also said the deliveries of new weapons to Kiev were aimed at “prolonging the conflict.”
MOSCOW ANNOUNCED: ALL DESTROYED
Minutes after Putin’s warning, Moscow announced that Eastern European countries had destroyed tanks supplied to Ukraine in airstrikes on Kiev.
“High-sensitive, long-range missiles fired by the Russian Air Force on the outskirts of Kiev destroyed T-72 tanks and other armored vehicles in hangars supplied by Eastern European countries,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said.
The US has announced that it will send advanced missile systems to Ukraine as part of its $700 million in arms aid.
RUSSIAN TARGETS IN THEIR BELLIGERENT
Among the weapons to be sent to Ukraine are 4 M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
It is stated that this missile system has a range of about 70 kilometers and the capacity to hit Russian targets.
GERMANY IS ALSO SENDING AID
The German government has also announced that it will send an air defense system to Ukraine.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told parliament that the IRIS-T to be sent is the best missile defense system in the country, stressing that Ukraine can defend an entire city against air strikes with this system.
