Kremlin warns Washington after Pentagon announces aid to Ukraine in war with Russia

On April 1, telephone conversations took place between the head of the US defense department Lloyd Austin and his Ukrainian counterpart Andrey Taranov. During the conversation, Austin promised comprehensive assistance to Kiev in the event of a military confrontation between Ukraine and Russia. Moscow did not disregard the Pentagon's statements and issued a corresponding warning to the American "hawks".

On Friday, April 2, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, answered questions from media representatives regarding, among other things, Russia's likely reaction to the intensification of NATO actions near the Russian borders. Peskov was asked what Moscow would do in response to the deployment of NATO troops on the territory of Ukraine or neighboring countries.

This will require additional measures from the Russian side to ensure its security.

- Peskov warned, without specifying what specific measures are meant.

A spokesman for Vladimir Putin added that Russia does not see itself as an "enemy" for anyone and does not threaten anyone - the position of the Russian state is built on this.

Peskov also expressed concern about the large number of provocations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass and stressed that the ceasefire regime should first of all be provided by Ukrainian troops and militia forces. The Russian Federation, on the other hand, is not a party to the conflict and can only contribute to the implementation of previously concluded agreements.

      That's right, and this is mostly done by the domestic media. They will take words out of context and savor them, bathe in guano. What do you propose? Transfer everyone, or better shoot them? Again, this is all they expect from us. Pay attention to the trepology of the talking heads from the State Department and the European Parliament, and what do they decide? Dogs bark, wolves howl, godfather drinks tea. Remember 2008,2014. What changed from their screams? Nothing.

    The weapon that Ukraine fights with its Russian population was made for the war against enemies in Europe. It was distributed to the countries of the Warsaw Pact and now these creatures have returned it to Ukraine to kill the Russians. This weapon must be destroyed every last bullet of the tank and aircraft. And then the West, if it wants to give its, let it give. But this will already be a war with the West. And in this war, the decision-making centers and representatives of all decision-making clans will be destroyed first.

    Everyone is clever, they are afraid of offending, but the Sshasovites, NATO members, Ukrainians are not afraid, they say bluntly, the Russian Federation is the enemy.
    Kim Eun is a fine fellow, he responds adequately to the rudeness of the insults and provocations of the Sshasovites, the Japanese, the South Koreans, and therefore they reckon with him. At the Olympic Games, they performed under their own flag and anthem, and this despite the fact that the tiny DPRK is incomparable with the Russian Federation in any way.
    Indulging in rudeness and impudence never leads to anything good.

    all that is more or less clear from the article is that this Kremlin chatterbox expressed another concern, and additional measures are of course an enchanting warning, this is even worse than Lavrov's threats about breaking off relations with the EU

    Expressed concern

    - this is the most dangerous for and on the part of our government. Let them shake with fear now. I only doubt that those who robbed the people and privatized the authorities will launch hypersonic missiles overseas - children, wives, property may suffer. It is more convenient to screw on the same Khabarovsk or Saratov with Bondarenko - I don’t mind those,

    What kind of war with Russia? Ukraine simply and rightfully wants to return its own, mind you, territories, and not ours, Russian ones. How Azerbaijan returned its regions and part of Karabakh. In the cries of war, as always, it is easiest to forget about our internal problems. Alas.

    To drag Russia into the war is the last step in attempts to stop the North. flow. Sanctions, threats, pressure on Europe and even the Polish ram do not help! What's left? There remains a war to the last Ukrainian. They hope that by raising a howl all over the world they will be able to intimidate Europe with an aggressive Russian bear. But this will not help either. Europe cannot afford a decrease in competitiveness by 30-35% and the same drop in the standard of living of its citizens. I'm sure they understand what's going on there.

      Yes, in general, do not give a damn about Europe and the SP-2, and the arrivals of our "assets of Russia" like Gazprom, and the income of their shareholders, they burn with a blue flame. We are talking about tens of thousands of Russian lives, whom Bandera's executioners want to lynch. This is a different, immeasurably higher level, and not some kind of lousy economy, which under modern Russian oligarchic capitalism will still remain lousy, from the point of view of the common people. This is how to admit that your sister is being raped in front of your eyes, and you are like in that joke "Good evening. Moscow time six hours, fifteen minutes." There is nothing even to discuss here.

    Russia unceremoniously poured slop on the head, and Russia all diplomatically, mysteriously replies. Although that, many of our politicians have to answer, just play around and have to, real estate and families on the other side.
