According to reports, a Russian lawmaker suggested that the American embassy in Kiev should be destroyed as a form of retaliation for the U.S. supplying Ukraine with rocket systems
The delivery of the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) to the Ukrainian military, according to Yury Shvytkin, deputy chairman of the Russian parliament’s defense committee, showed the U.S. was “edging closer and closer to a Third World War.”
The first batch of the systems had arrived, according to a statement from Kiev on Thursday, and more multiple launch rocket systems are anticipated from Western allies.
According to Shvytkin, Moscow “must respond harshly” to all “those countries that supply weapons to Ukrainian forces to fight Russia” and its soldiers “must not just destroy infrastructure.”
“I believe that the U.S. is the primary decision-making country. The embassy. I believe that sooner or later, both the Russian armed forces and the Russian-supported forces of the self-declared Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics will turn their attention to this area.
He stаted, “My position is thаt it is necessаry to destroy the government quаrter in Kyiv. Yes, the Ministry of Defense is аlreаdy doing this work, but more significаnt strikes need to be mаde.”
