Russia Warns Long-Range U.S. Missiles at Ukraine Border ‘Intolerable’

Reacting to news reports that the U.S. is planning to send long-range rocket systems to Ukraine, a top Russian diplomat on Saturday called for an “end to the senseless and extremely risky pumping of weapons into the country.”

On Friday, news outlets reported that the Biden administration is expected to send multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) to the Eastern European nation. Ukrainian officials have requested the weapons to attack Russians at longer ranges and threaten Russian logistics hubs and routes to slow their offensive in the Donbas region.

In a post on Telegram on Saturday, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, said the Biden administration “may give Kyiv HIMARS MLRS and M270 MLRS, which will be equipped with M31 GMLRS guided missiles.”

“There is a risk that such equipment will be placed near Russia’s borders and Ukrainians will be able to strike at Russian cities. Such a situation is unacceptable and intolerable for us,” he said, according to Ukrayinska Pravda.

  1. “There is a risk that such equipment will be placed near Russia’s borders and Ukrainians will be able to strike at Russian cities. Such a situation is unacceptable and intolerable for us,”

    Oh dear. The orcs think missiles can only travel one way in a war. Making Moscow look like Mariupol might wake the sheep up, but I doubt it.

  2. I often have to read statements made by ruskie cockroaches on an empty stomach, lest I vomit all over the place. This article is one of them…
    The cockroaches are afraid that Ukraine will bring death and destruction to mafia land. I wish they could. Mafia land definitely deserves it!

  3. You rooskis should have thought thought things a bit better. You started a war and you have to take fire as well. It matters not a whit how much you find “unacceptable.”
