Russia again scares with nuclear weapons and warns the US about long-range weapons in Ukraine

A senior Russian diplomat warned Washington on Friday against supplying Ukraine with long-range weaponsnoting that the US is teetering on the edge of direct involvement in the conflict, AP writes.

Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Ryabkov also pointed to the country’s military doctrine, which foresees the use of nuclear weapons in the event of a threat to the existence of the Russian state.

We have repeatedly warned the US of the consequences that could followif the US continues to flood Ukraine with weapons,” Ryabkov said. “They are effectively putting themselves in a position close to what can be described as a party to the conflict.”

Speaking on state television, Ryabkov warned that “a very narrow border that separates the US from becoming a party to the conflict, should not give the rabid anti-Russian forces the illusion that everything will remain as it is if they cross it“.

He emphasized that Russia will continue its offensive in Ukraine until it achieves its goals.

“Russia is able to fully protect its interests and the goals of the special military operation will be fully achieved,” Ryabkov said.

He pointed out that Russia’s military doctrine provides that she could use nuclear weapons in the event of aggression against Russia and its allies with weapons of mass destruction or aggression using conventional weapons that threatens the very existence of the Russian state.

Deliveries of US rocket launchers HIMARS enhanced the strike capacity of the Ukrainian army, which uses them to strike key infrastructure sites and other targets. The truck-mounted systems fire GPS-guided missiles capable of reaching targets up to 80 kilometers away.

The authorities of The US has so far refrained from providing Ukraine with longer-range missiles for HIMARS launchers, which can reach as far as 300 kilometers and could potentially allow the Ukrainian military to strike areas deep inside Russia.

“We warn The US not to take provocative steps, such as the supply of longer-range weapons and more destructive weapons,” Ryabkov said.

This is a road to nowhere, fraught with serious consequences, the responsibility for which will rest entirely with Washington.”
