Russia & U.K. Exchange Threats

Ethan Huff
Russia is saying not so fast to remarks made by British Foreign Secretary David Cameron that Ukraine has a right to use United Kingdom-provided missiles to strike targets deep within Russian territory.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry summoned London ambassador Nigel Casey following Cameron’s remarks to let him know that should Great Britain follow through on this threat, Russia will retaliate accordingly by striking British targets in Ukraine and elsewhere.

“Casey was warned that the response to Ukrainian strikes using British weapons on Russian territory could be any British military facilities and equipment on the territory of Ukraine and beyond,” reads a statement from the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Previously, the United States and its allies, including the UK, had stipulated that the long-range weapons they send to Ukraine can only be used on territories such as Crimea, the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, and the Kherson and Zaporozhye Regions that Ukraine claims as its own – and not on actual Russian territory as currently understood.

By making the comments he made, Cameron “de facto recognized his country as a party to the conflict,” declared the Russian Foreign Ministry, adding that Cameron’s comments serve as “evidence of a serious escalation and confirmation of London’s increasing involvement in military operations on the side of Kyiv.”

Russia reportedly urged Casey to “think about the inevitable catastrophic consequences of such hostile steps from London and to immediately refute in the most decisive and unequivocal manner the bellicose provocative statements of the head of the Foreign Office.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to these latest developments by ordering an exercise to test the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons, calling these statements recently made by Western officials “provocative statements and threats.”

These drills, Putin and his people said, aim to “cool down the ‘hot heads’ in Western capitals and help them understand the possible catastrophic consequences of the strategic risks they generate.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry also stated that Western leaders need to know that any move in the direction Cameron said publicly will immediately draw Western powers right “into a direct armed confrontation with Russia.”

“It would be a pity for London and Paris to become a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah,” one RT commenter wrote about where all this is headed.

“No more free passes for the U.S. and its vassal states,” wrote another. “Make them pay. No deterrent. They’ve no reason to stop. It’s not complicated.”

“These subservient idiots will keep upping the ante until Putin finally bloodies their noses,” suggested another. “They are asking for it.”

Someone else said these “tough solid words” are only “18 months too late,” but better late than never.

“Meanwhile, Russian uranium fuel keeps heading to the U.S. and LNG (liquefied natural gas) to Europe,” this person added.

“Without Uncle Sam, Macron would not dare to shoot his mouth off,” wrote another, referring to a summons issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry against French Ambassador Pierre Levy, the details of which remain unknown.

Another commenter pointed out the convenient timing of all this in relation to the teetering Western financial markets, which are about to take a freefall.

“The U.S. financial system must be in more trouble than even we thought which is why Israel is targeting Rafah, and why these EU and UK puppets are stepping up their need to amass even greater profits before the whole U.S. system dies.”
