Putin threatens to arm allies, as West OK’s Ukraine to strike Russian tragets

by ian

Major threats are coming from Moscow.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said this week Russia might begin arming allied countries to attack the West. His threats come in response to recent efforts by the US and others to arm Ukraine with long-range weapons to strike targets on Russian soil.

“If someone thinks it is possible to supply such weapons to a war zone to attack our territory and create problems for us,” Putin said, “why don’t we have the right to supply weapons of the same class to regions of the world where there will be strikes on sensitive facilities of those countries?”

Putin didn’t specify which countries he would give weapons to. But he did single out Germany as a potential target, as it recently green-lit Ukraine to strike Russia with German weapons.

Putin denied having any plans to attack NATO allies, at least for now.
