"Arms Sale To Ukraine Revives The Greatest European Fear That They Will Become Parties To Hostilities"

"By recognizing the legitimacy of the Armed Forces of Ukraines strikes on military facilities on Russian territory, London also vindicated Russian Air Force strikes on logistics of those NATO member-states that supply arms to Kyiv. Poland and Romania are the first to go.

"British [Parliamentary] Under-Secretary of State for the Armed Forces, James Heappey, told Times Radio that Ukraine has the legitimate right to strike military facilities in Russia to disrupt the Russian Armed Forces' logistics. According to him, it is 'completely legitimate for Ukraine to be targeting in Russia's depth in order to disrupt the logistics that if they were not disrupted would directly contribute to death and carnage on Ukrainian soil.'

"Commenting on this statement, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova noted that now, for the sake of disrupting the logistics of military supplies, Russia can strike military targets on the territory of those NATO countries that supply arms to the Kyiv regime. 'Do we understand correctly? After all, this directly leads to deaths and bloodshed on Ukrainian territory. As far as I understand, Britain is one of those countries,' noted Zakharova in her Telegram channel.

"Each instance of arms sales to the Ukraine revives the greatest European fear that they will become parties to hostilities and that 'Putin's wrath' [will fall upon them]... During his visit to Kosovo, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto stated that Hungary does not plan to supply lethal arms to Ukraine and will not allow arms transit supplies to Kyiv (through the country's territory), as they 'may become the target of hostile military actions. We will not get involved in this war,' explained the minister.

"Incidentally, a group of German public figures wrote an open letter to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz urging him to stop supplying arms to Ukraine because it 'will draw Germany into a war.' 'By supplying arms, Germany and other NATO member-states have de facto made themselves a party to the war. Thus, Ukraine has become a battlefield in the conflict between NATO and Russia over security rules in Europe, which has been escalating for years,' reads the letter."

"The First To Endure Losses Will Be The U.S. Allies"

"Who will be the first to be hit by 'Kalibr'[?]

"Active suppliers of lethal arms to Nazi Kyiv are: 

"Czech Republic, 






"Many do it informally, such as Bulgaria for example. 

"[Russian] Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that talks on Ukraine are unlikely to be fruitful, provided Kyiv continues to be supplied with arms. In the U.S., CNN called the arms supplies to Ukraine 'an investment in the neutralization of the Russian army and navy for the next decade.'

"Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin's recent statements about his intention to 'weaken Russia' through military aid to Ukraine came as a cynical reminder that NATO is an aggressive body and that the object of its aggression is Russia.

"Where is it more likely that Western logistics and military facilities will be hit?

"First of all, in Romania, which could now invade Transnistria to help [its] Moldovan brothers.

"Second, in Poland, through which all Western logistics for the arms supply goes.

"These countries would not mentally and physically survive a 'Kalibr' strike. True, it will basically be a prelude to World War III, but the first to endure losses will be the U.S. allies, who are critically misbehaving."
