“If you hit us with your weapons we will hit you”: Russia threatens UK



Russia has warned the UK that it may target British military facilities in Ukraine and beyond if Ukraine uses British weapons to strike Russian territory. The Russian Foreign Ministry, Lavrov, summoned the British ambassador to Moscow to express its protest against statements by British officials suggesting Ukraine’s right to strike Russia with British weapons. Reuters reported the news

Russia’s foreign ministry said the Cameron remarks recognised that Britain was now de facto a part of the conflict and contradicted an earlier assurance that long-range weapons given to Ukraine would not be used against Russia.
“Casey was warned that in response to Ukrainian attacks on Russian territory with British weapons, any British military facilities and equipment on the territory of Ukraine and abroad” could be targeted, the foreign ministry said.

The ministry said it considered Cameron’s remarks a serious escalation.
“The Ambassador was called upon to reflect on the inevitable catastrophic consequences of such hostile steps by London and immediately refute the belligerent provocative statements of the head of the Foreign Office in the most decisive and unambiguous way.”

Cameron, during a visit to Kyiv last week, told Reuters that Ukraine had a right to use the weapons provided by Britain to strike targets inside Russia and that it was up to Kyiv whether or not to do so.

This development has raised concerns about the potential escalation of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
