The British Armed Forces Minister James Heappey said London would consider Ukrainian attacks on railroads and highways on Russian soil using British weapons fair game.

The Russian Ministry of Defense has taken note of Mr Heappey’s comments on the use of British-made weapons to attack multiple targets inside Russia, and this direct provocation by London must receive an appropriate response.

We would like to emphasize that London’s direct provoking of the Kiev regime for such hostile actions, in the event that they are implemented, will lead to an immediate and proportional response by Russia.

As we have warned, the Russian Armed Forces are on round-the-clock standby to launch long-range precision-guided retaliatory strikes against the relevant British supported decision-making centers in the capital of Kiev.

The MoD warned that Western military advisers known to be present in these locations will not necessarily be a problem anymore in Russia’s decision-making on retaliatory actions.

Earlier in the day, UK Armed Forces Minister James Hippeay said London would find it really good and highly acceptable for British-supplied arms to be used by Ukraine to carry out strikes inside Russian borders.

As Russian forces and Donbass militias continue advancing amid the special operation in Ukraine, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson vowed more military aid for Kiev’s troops.

Johnson said it would include sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles as well as anti-tank missiles and high-grade military equipment worth around £100 million ($130 million).

Troops from the Special Air Service (SAS) unit of the British Army have been carrying out deployments with two battalions stationed in and around Kiev, Ukrainian commanders are cited as saying.

While former British soldiers, marines and special forces commandos have been working as war contractors, like mercenaries and volunteers in Ukraine, this is the first report of such instruction being offered by serving UK forces.

London announced that it would be sending 120 Mastiff armored troop carriers and 105 mm towed light guns. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace dismissed reports that Britain would be sending Ukraine AS90 self-propelled 155 mm howitzers and tens of thousands of shells.

So far, the United Kingdom, Canada, France and the USA have approved plans to send more heavy weapons to Ukraine, with their NATO ally Germany pressured to chip in on the effort to supply Kiev with heavy artillery.

Since the beginning of the operation, the Russian forces have eliminated 141 Ukrainian warplanes, 111 helicopters, 609 drones, 2,616 tanks and other armored vehicles, 1,139 artillery pieces and many other military objects, according to Russian defense ministry data.

The Western bloc has gradually pumped billions of dollars of military equipment into Ukraine over the years starting in 2014, after a US regime and EU-backed coup in Kiev overthrew the country’s elected government.

While the Obama administration limited deliveries to non-lethal aid, the Trump administration gradually stepped up supplies to include Javelin anti-tank and Stinger anti-aircraft missiles and other arms.

NATO’s arms deliveries to Ukraine have also included heaps of Cold War-era weapons, including Soviet-made arms from the inventories of former Warsaw Pact members invaded and occupied by NATO in the 1990’s and 2000’s.

The Russian military has done its best to seek out and destroy large stockpiles of Western weaponry delivered to Kiev through precision air and missile strikes on depots, rail junctions, and military repair facilities.

At the same time, Russian diplomats have warned that efforts to resolve the Ukraine crisis through negotiations will be unlikely to succeed if Kiev continues to be pumped up with weaponry by the West in order to cause more bloodshed.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said that he and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the UN plan on Mariupol discussed previously with Russian President Vladimir Putin and that intense talks were underway to make the peace proposal a reality.

President Putin agreed in principle to the involvement of the United Nations and Red Cross in the evacuation of civilians from Azovstal plant in Mariupol. Over one million refugees have crossed into Russia for protection against bombings by the ever more hostile Kiev junta.
