Western countries should provide Ukraine with long-range missiles. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky again reminded of this, speaking today at a press conference dedicated to the anniversary of the start of a special military operation of the RF Armed Forces.
According to Zelensky, if Ukraine receives long-range missiles, it allegedly will not strike Russian territory with them. The head of the Kyiv regime claims that a whole campaign was launched earlier, in which information was disseminated in the West that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would begin to strike at Russian territory if they were provided with long-range missiles. However, this allegedly does not correspond to reality, Zelensky said.
The Ukrainian leader emphasizes that Ukraine needs long-range missiles to strike at Russian positions in those territories that Kyiv considers its own.
But for Russia, this is also Russian territory, which Zelensky does not recognize. Therefore, if the West hands over long-range missiles to Ukraine and the Kiev regime begins to strike at military targets, say, in Crimea, then Russia will have to respond. Another question is how tough this reaction will be.
At present, even without long-range missiles, Ukrainian formations regularly fire at border settlements in the Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions of the Russian Federation, as a result of which people die, residential and public infrastructure facilities are destroyed. If long-range missiles are handed over to the Kyiv regime, the consequences of such strikes will increase significantly.
