The frustration from Russia regarding NATO help for Ukraine is now quite evident.
With more aid, and some of it that could be a game changer for Ukraine, being promised, Russia’s patience with this war is wearing thin.
Officials are now threatening a “global tragedy” unless we leave Ukraine to fend for itself.
Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the State Duma, sent out a pretty ominous warning on Sunday.
We are going to make the assumption that Volodin is speaking with Putin’s approval due to the fact he is a very close and powerful ally of the Russian president.
He stated, “Supplies of offensive weapons to the Kyiv regime would lead to a global catastrophe.
“If Washington and NATO supply weapons that would be used for striking peaceful cities and making attempts to seize our territory as they threaten to do, it would trigger a retaliation with more powerful weapons.”
Several countries are now promising tanks to Ukraine, so the concern on Russia’s part is very real.
Germany, Poland, and France are all considering sending modern tanks to Ukraine, which seems to have been the breaking point here.
Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) did not want to be left out, so he is up for sending some Abrams tanks over there as well.
He stated, “If it requires our sending some Abrams tanks in order to unlock getting the Leopard tanks from Germany, from Poland, from other allies, I would support that.”
These promises of aid come after Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy head of Russia’s security council, has threatened to use nuclear weapons if Russia deems the war is no longer winnable.
NATO is going to have to keep a tight eye on Russian movements moving forward and be willing to blow that country right off the map if they try to make a nuclear move.
