Paranoid Putin’s ‘end is nigh’ as Russian despot ‘loses power’ in Kremlin
Russia accuses US of seeking to prolong war
RUSSIA has accused the US of seeking to prolong the war after US President Joe Biden said he would supply Kyiv with new long-range missiles.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the US was “intentionally adding fuel to the fire” with the deliveries.
“These supplies do not contribute to the will of the Ukrainian leadership to resume peace negotiations,” he added.
Britain will also send several rocket launch systems, capable of hitting targets as far away as 49 miles.
The M270B1 launchers will provide “a significant increase in the capabilities of the Ukrainian forces”, according to a press release from the British Foreign Office, reported by CNN.
This decision was “closely coordinated” with the United States.
“The UK stands with Ukraine and has played a leading role in providing its heroic troops with the vital weapons they need to defend their country,” the UK Defense Secretary said on Wednesday. Ben Wallace.
“As Russian tactics change, our support for Ukraine must also change. These high-performance multiple-launch rocket systems will better protect our Ukrainian friends against Russia’s brutal use of long-range artillery, which Putin’s forces have used indiscriminately to raze cities.”
