President Vladimir Putin warned on Wednesday that Russia will perform a “lightning-speed” attack to any strategic interference in what is happening in Ukraine.
“If someone sets out to interfere in ongoing events and creates unacceptable strategic threats to Russia, they should know that our retaliatory strikes will be swift,” he said during an address to the Council of Parliamentarians in St. Petersburg.
Implicitly alluding to hypersonic weapons, Putin recalled his country has “all the instruments” for an extremely rapid response, adding that “we are not going to brag. We will use them if necessary. And I want everyone to know it. All decisions on this have already been made.”
He also accused Western countries of turning Ukraine into an “anti-Russia.” The US-NATO strategy has pushed the Ukrainians to clash with Russia, attack the Crimean peninsula and Donbas, and open bioweapons laboratories.
