MOSCOW (Dispatches) – Russia has warned that it will take retaliatory measures against the Zionist regime in case the regime supplies Ukraine with military equipment and aid amid the military conflict there.
Bloomberg television news network, citing two unnamed sources familiar with Russian policy, reported that Moscow would respond if the regime passed along missile systems directly or through a third party to Ukraine.
The Zionist regime seems to be warming to the idea of supplying military equipment to Ukraine.
However, the coming change of administration in the Israeli-occupied territories leaves future policy under question. Benjamin Netanyahu, who is expected to form the next cabinet in the occupied territories, has been known for his good relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The Bloomberg report follows remarks made by former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev last month, who said the regime would “destroy” all ties with Moscow if it insists on the “very reckless move” of supplying Ukraine with weapons.
The Israeli regime’s diaspora affairs minister Nachman Shai said on October 17 that the “time has come for Ukraine to receive military aid” from the regime.
“Israel seems to be going to supply weapons to the Kiev regime; a very reckless move. It will destroy all interstate relations between” Moscow and Tel Aviv, Medvedev, currently serving as deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, later wrote in a Telegram post in response, saying that Ukraine is praising “Nazi” heroes.
“If they are supplied with weapons then it is time for Israel to declare [Stepan] Bandera and [Roman] Shukhevych their heroes,” the senior Russian politician added, referring to Ukraine’s nationalist leaders of the 1940s and 1950s.
Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky told Channel 12’s “Uvda” that the regime recently agreed to provide his country with radio systems it had requested in February.
On Sunday, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the occupied territories Yevgen Korniychuk also said there had been progress “on some technical issues” related to military cooperation between Kiev and Tel Aviv, particularly regarding Israel’s offer to provide missile alert technology.
