Agency. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned against expanding his list of targets to attack Ukraine. Putin issued the warning after Western nations announced that they would provide long-range weapons to Kiev.
Putin has also warned the United States that it is preparing to supply long-range weapons to Ukraine. Russian media quoted CNN as saying that Putin had warned that the war would escalate further if this happened on Sunday.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a Russian military base in the capital, Kiev. “Sending new weapons to Kiev is to push the armed conflict as far as possible,” Putin said.
US President Joe Biden has announced that he will provide Ukraine with state-of-the-art rocket systems to protect itself. The United States has announced the launch of the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System HIMARS.
Biden said the rocket would be given to Ukraine only if it did not strike inside Russia. He did not say how many rockets he would give.
Putin has said that sending long-range missiles to Kiev would lead to a fair conclusion. “If they do, we will draw a fair conclusion.” We will use our own weapons, which we have in abundance, which we have not yet used, “Putin warned.
Russia has retracted its military efforts in Donbass since withdrawing from the Kiev region in late March. While Russia is making slow but steady progress on land routes, many countries have promised to send sophisticated weapons to Kiev.
It has been 103 days since Russia started the war in Ukraine. Many Ukrainians have fled the country during this period.
