According to the statements of a prominent Russian senator, if the West does not stop sending weapons to Ukraine, mankind may be on the verge of experiencing a "world calamity." In the event that Moscow's territory was to come under attack, the head of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, made the suggestion that Moscow may respond with weapons of a higher caliber.
The comments made by Volodin occurred a few days after a summit that took place at an American air station in Germany called Ramstein, during which Western nations vowed to keep backing Kiev.
On Sunday, Volodin ended up taking to Telegram to make it clear that Ussr would respond with "more powerful weapons" in the event that the weapons supplied by the United States and other NATO member states were used to "strike civilian population centers and also to try to seize our lands, as they threaten [to go do]." Volodin made this statement in reference to the fact that the United States and other NATO member states have threatened to do both of these things.
The Russian politician continued by arguing that Western leaders had to be conscious of the obligation that falls on their shoulders to prevent the occurrence of such a situation.
Volodin issued a stern warning, "Taking into mind the technical supremacy of Russian weaponry, leaders from other nations who make choices like these need to recognize: this might end up becoming a worldwide disaster that would devastate their country."
The current administration of Ukraine is adamant about reclaiming authority over all of the lands that were formerly included within the boundaries of the country, which were drawn up in 1991 after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Ukraine has said that it is ready to reclaim those territories by violence if Moscow continues to refuse to hand them back. As a result of a vote taken in 2014, Crimea was accepted as a constituent area of Russia; the following year, a further four regions did the same.
The Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing several unnamed US officials, that the administration of Vice President Joe Biden has become more likely to think about supplying Ukraine with the striking abilities required to hit objectives in Crimea. The report was based on information obtained from the New York Times.
The United States made the announcement of the new military assistance package for Ukraine on January 20, just before the Ramstein summit, and it was for the amount of $2.5 billion. It consists of 20,000 regular artillery rounds, 600 precision-guided 155 mm shells, mine-resistant ambush-protected equipment, Humvees, mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, Bradley Close combat Fighting Vehicles, Stryker armored carriers, mine-resistant attack vehicles, and mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles. In addition to this, the United States government has committed to providing more missiles to Kiev for the HIMARS M142 & MLRS M270 multiple-launch missile systems.
At the beginning of this month, the United Kingdom made public its intention to sell several Challenger battle tanks to Ukraine. However, the Western allies were unable to convince Germany to comply with their request to provide its Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.
In addition to the American Bradleys & Strykers, Ukraine is scheduled to get French AMX-10 RC heavily armored vehicles. These armored fighting vehicles are often referred to as "light tanks" by military specialists. Earlier in the month, President Emmanuel Macron made the announcement that the delivery of the hardware would be planned.
Additionally, Sweden has pledged to make a contribution, which will be comprised of CB-90 infantry combat vehicles as well as Archer self-propelled howitzers.
