London, Reuters. Amidst the ongoing attacks on Ukraine, Russia has given a stern warning to the West. Russia on Thursday warned the West that any attack on the Moscow region would be met with a tough military response. At the same time, Russia has accused the US and its major European allies of openly inciting Ukraine to attack Moscow.
Two months after Russia invaded Ukraine, Moscow has reported in recent days what it is calling a series of attacks by Ukrainian forces on Russian territories bordering Ukraine. Also warned that such attacks pose a danger.
Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the West is openly calling on Kyiv to attack Russia, including using weapons procured from NATO countries. Also said that I advise you not to test our patience any more.
Will definitely give strong response from Russia: Russian Defense Ministry
Russia’s defense ministry said on Tuesday that if such attacks continued, Moscow would target decision-making centers in Ukraine, including those where it said Western advisers were helping Kyiv. Zakharova said that Ukraine and the capitals of the West should take the defense ministry’s statement seriously that provoking Ukraine to attack Russian territory would certainly result in a strong response from Russia. Simultaneously, Zakharova has described Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as a puppet of the West, which is being used by the US to threaten Russia.
