British retired general: Putin could fire dozens of missiles at Britain

While the head of the Kyiv regime, Zelensky, complains that Ukraine has a weak air defense system, and Western allies are in no hurry to transfer new complexes to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in the UK they envy our “western neighbor.”

In an interview with Mail Online, British retired general Richard Barrons said that Russia would be able to launch a missile attack on London without hindrance, and the UK's missile defense would not be able to neutralize the threat.



Putin can bombard the UK with dozens of the same missiles he uses in Ukraine and there's nothing we can do

- said the military.

According to Barrons, British air defense/missile defense today is much worse than the Ukrainian one, and Kyiv is protected many times better than London.

The retired general attributes this to the fact that previously his country did not need a powerful missile defense. Now, as he put it, even a rather old cruise missile with a 500-kilogram warhead, which the Russian aviation will be released from the western part of the Russian Federation and will arrive in London unhindered in an hour and a half. Moreover, the deviation of such “outdated” ammunition is only 2 meters.

Watch your doors in Downing Street

- Barrons concluded.

It is worth noting that British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak should have listened to the words of the retired general. After all, the Storm Shadow aircraft missiles they transferred to Kyiv are regularly used by the Ukrainian Armed Forces to strike Russian territory.

        Dear Colleagues! Leave your wet dreams, no one from our side will be the first to launch missiles at London (at least until the moment when London launches its missiles from SSBNs in our direction), that’s not what families, studying children and the real estate of our Buratins are there for.. .

              At the moment, the extraction of property and property of Russian oligarchs, in common people - the nouveau riche, evokes a feeling of deep satisfaction among the dispossessed and bloodless Russian population.
              What’s more annoying is the brazen European habit of picking through other people’s pockets... Judging by the publications, we are talking about $50, which translated into rubles is close to 000 trillion rubles... A guarantor should not make such gifts to Anglo-Saxon society. Hence the grief for blood lost, but not avenged...

                  If you love to ride (have fun), you also love to carry sleds (to drag them up the hill - to work). ... In a figurative sense, this phrase tells us that in order to have a good rest, you need to work well.

    Anecdote from diplomats:
    One fine morning, representatives of different countries in the UN building witnessed a scene: a Russian diplomat walked along the corridor and muttered under his nose: “Where are there seven more, well, where else are seven, where else???” Well, seeing the torment of our diplomat, foreign colleagues decided to ask what he was so worried about. They came up and asked. Our guy tells them: “Well, they fired a missile at Britain, but two or three warheads are enough for them. So I’m thinking: where else are seven?” laughing

      Well, it’s necessary, it’s necessary - the rocket, sighing, flew slightly faster than Mach 3... smile
      In fact, there is nothing special to overcome there. NATO air defense/missile defense systems protect large cities at best. There are simply too few/not enough of them, there are no own developments for a long time, and almost all of the Patriots are disposed of in Ukraine. It will be difficult for her to get around what the Europeans have left.
