Russia: Any Country Doing This Will Become ‘Legitimate Targets’
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned that any countries delivering military equipment to Ukraine will be considered “legitimate targets” for Russian strikes.
“We clearly said that any cargo moving into the Ukrainian territory which we would believe is carrying weapons would be fair game,” Lavrov said.
“This is clear because we are implementing the operation the goal of which is to remove any threat to the Russian Federation coming from the Ukrainian soil.”
Lavrov’s comments come just one day after Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) introduced a resolution to provide Ukraine with fighter jets and air defense systems.
“I’m urging the Senate to speak with one voice, to meet the moment. … If we had a vote on the resolution to supply the Ukrainian military with the MiG fighters and other air defense systems, it would be a shot in the arm to Ukrainian people and their military,” Graham said.
