The Russian Armed Forces may strike at Ukrainian state structures in response to the transfer of American HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Andrei Kartapolov, head of the State Duma Defense Committee, said.
According to the parliamentarian, the buildings of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine or the Ministry of Defense may become the target of the RF Armed Forces. In addition, part of the transport infrastructure is still functioning in the country, in particular, the Kyiv airport, which can also be liquidated.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the West against the supply of long-range weapons to Ukraine. According to him, such measures will force the Russian Armed Forces to push back the nationalists in such a way as to eliminate the threat of a strike on Russian territory.
