A Russian presenter has hinted on the news that American missile shipments could result in the Russians moving as far as Warsaw.
A presenter on Russian state television, Olga Skabeeva, has hinted that US military support for Ukraine could lead to the war escalating into a conflict between Russia and NATO. “If, God forbid, the Americans deliver missiles that can fly 300 kilometers, then we just can’t stop,” said Skabeeva, “then we will go all the way to Warsaw.”
The background to her statement is that the USA has been supplying Ukraine with the Himar multiple rocket launcher since June, which can hit even more targets than previously delivered howitzers. Kremlin sources have already expressed concern about the weapons systems, which have reportedly caused significant casualties in troops and equipment, especially as the US pledged even more military support to Ukraine.
