Russia Warns Against Supply of Fighter Jets to Ukraine
Feb. 9, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—The Russian government has warned against the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine, following Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s orchestrated visit to London yesterday. A statement from the Russian Embassy to the United Kingdom said: “Zelenskyy’s ‘fundraising event’ in London would of course have been incomplete without begging for more weapons that Kiev has long ceased to pretend are merely ‘defensive’ in nature—this time Western fighter jets. Given that NATO artillery systems have been repeatedly used by Kiev warmongers to shell peaceful cities of the Donbass, hardly any doubts remain that Western jets, should they ever be provided, would also be used in air-raids against residential areas of the D.P.R., L.P.R., Kherson and Zaporozhye regions that have come under Russian protection.
“We would like to remind London: in the event of such a scenario the death toll of yet another round of escalation, as well as its military-political consequences for the European continent and the whole world will be on the United Kingdom’s hands.”
