Peskov: British aid to Ukraine will not affect the conduct of the special operation

Last week, it became known that the UK transferred Storm Shadow long-range missiles to Ukraine. Kyiv assured its British "partners" that they would be applied only to "sovereign Ukrainian territories."

So, on May 12, Ukrainians attacked Lugansk with Western missiles. Arrivals of Storm Shadow fell on the Polipak enterprise and the Milam meat processing plant. The next day, the Ukrainian Armed Forces attacked the Lugansk Academy of Internal Affairs.

Despite the incident, the press secretary of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, noted that London's assistance to Ukrainian militants would not affect the course of the special operation. The supply of Western weapons will only create more difficulties for Kyiv and lead to numerous casualties.

We repeat once again that this cannot have any significant and fundamental impact on the course of the special military operation. But, of course, this leads to further destruction.

- stressed Peskov.

A number of experts indicate that the range of Storm Shadow is from 450 to 900 km. The rocket speed reaches Mach 0,95. The mass of the warhead is about 450 km. The main feature of the Storm Shadow is its reduced radar visibility, since the hull is made of composite materials.

However, despite such characteristics, on May 15, Russian air defense systems shot down one Storm Shadow missile. The RF Armed Forces also destroyed seven HARM anti-radar missiles and 10 HIMARS rockets.

    Well, of course, these missiles will not reach Peskov, and he can continue to kiss the hands of the enemies of Russia

    Peskov - "The supply of Western weapons will only create more difficulties for Kyiv and lead to numerous casualties"

    Dare I ask what kind of victims? To the victims of the Russian soldiers, the Russian population Instead of empty words, people are waiting for real action. Endless statements about red lines are just empty and useless shaking the air.

    Translated into ordinary language, Peskov explained that they don’t care about the appearance of these missiles and they don’t want to take it into their heads, but that these missiles will blow someone’s head off is their problem.

    Don’t escalate, you don’t want it to be like in 39, with their mass executions of some individuals who simply raised doubts? So that some Chekists walk along Rublyovka. We don't need this! Don't push!
    Glory to Putin!

    Peskov is completely mad, these missiles are already killing Russian people, you sitting in the Kremlin cannot understand this, he has become completely ossified and out of touch with reality. It is for such people that our flags and anthems are taken away from us, and no one is afraid anymore, they bomb us, they kill us ...., and he keeps rolling his eyes.

    For the violation by Britain of another red line - the supply of long-range missiles and shells with depleted uranium, will an "adequate" reaction follow or what?

    Why are you sculpting a mustachioed cockroach! An extra cartridge for a machine gun handed over to Ukrainians can have an effect if it hits our serviceman. And here are long-range missiles. You need to be sent to the Belgorod region for a week in some village on the border with Ukraine. There you will understand everything.

    Fi, what nonsense, yes Mr. Peskov? Given that the GDP said:

    I myself sometimes wonder what he carries (says).

    So Mr. Barrymore (Peskov) from the Kremlin, how can I put it mildly? We heard you, the information flew out to the people, bravo.

    If Peskov carries a gag, then he must be driven with a filthy broom.
    If Peskov voices the opinion of the president.......?!
    Then I have no words, one mat.

      He speaks the opinion and words of the president, this is his position. What he says in his post is that he does everything right. Are you savvy?

    There, in the Kremlin, it can, of course, not have an effect over a glass of tea (maybe). Maybe every bird will not reach the office ... But in Novorossia, the Kursk, Belgorod, Bryansk regions, in the Crimea, something explodes, planes go astray, civilians die under shelling, the Army suffers losses .... otherwise yes. .. far from Caesar.
