Dmitry Medvedev, the former Russian president and current deputy head of the Russian Security Council, threatened the West after Biden upped the Ukraine War stakes by pushing for longer range weapons capable of striking inside Russia.
The Biden Administration is planning to send MQ-1C Gray Eagle Drones (shown above) equipped with Hellfire Missiles to Ukraine, which are more destructive and longer range than currently deployed drones.
In an op-ed for the New York Times, Joe Biden’s handlers stated, “We are not encouraging or enabling Ukraine to strike beyond its borders.” after announcing he is providing “more advanced rocket systems and munitions.”
In addition to longer-range drones, Team Biden hopes to send Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS), also called HIMARS (High Mobility Rockets System) with a range of 185 miles.
Medvedev warned that if the new lethal aid is used against Russian territory, “the armed forces of our country will have no choice but to act to defeat decision-making centres.”
“But you need to understand that the final decision-making centres in this case, unfortunately, are not even located on the territory of Kyiv.”Dmitry Medvedev
These statements came after Russia held nuclear readiness drills northeast of Moscow.
After 100 days of war, Russia controls roughly 20% of Ukraine along a 600-mile frontline.
