World War III is now a “REAL DANGER”, and Britain and NATO will be a “legitimate” goal, warns Putin’s head – Reuters

A nuclear world war is now a “real” threat, and Britain and NATO will be “legitimate” targets, the Russian foreign minister warned.

In a terrible message, Sergei Lavrov said that the risk of World War III is now “significant” and should not be “underestimated”.

Lavrov accused NATO forces of “adding fuel to the fire” by supplying weapons to Ukrainian troops, and said Russia was desperate to prevent a nuclear war.

In an interview with Russian news agencies, he said: “This is our key position on which we base everything. Now the risks are significant.

“I do not want to artificially increase these risks. Many would like that. The danger is serious, real, and we should not underestimate it. “

And the military hawk said that Britain and other NATO countries would be a legitimate target “after the introduction of weapons into Ukraine.”

Lavrov said: “NATO is, in fact, waging war on Russia through a proxy and arming this trustee. War means war. “

The Foreign Minister also criticized Kyiv’s approach to peace talks with Moscow.

He said: “Good will has its limits. But if it is not mutual, it will not help the negotiation process. “

The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba called Lavrov’s comments a sign of Russia’s weakness.

In a statement on Twitter, Kuleba said that Russia had lost “the last hope to dissuade the world from supporting Ukraine.”

He added: “It only means that Moscow is losing.”

Britain has also downplayed Russian warnings.

Armed Forces Minister James Happy told the BBC: “Lavrov’s trademark has been such a bravado for about 15 years when he was Russia’s foreign minister.

“I do not think there is an imminent threat of escalation.”

This came after the United States on Monday approved a potential sale of $ 165 million worth of ammunition to Ukraine.

The Pentagon said the package could include ammunition for howitzers, tanks and grenade launchers.

Moscow’s ambassador to Washington has told the United States to suspend supplies, warning that Western weapons are fueling the conflict.

Moscow has stepped up its accountability to Britain, saying Ukraine’s secret unit, Psiop, had committed atrocities during the war, such as raping a woman and exploding children.


Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is due to arrive in Moscow today to meet with Vladimir Putin and Lavrov, the most high-profile peacekeeping mission since the start of the war.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has left thousands dead or wounded, turning the city into ruins and forcing more than five million people to flee.

Russia has not yet captured any of Ukraine’s largest cities after its forces withdrew from the outskirts of Kyiv last month in the face of resistance.

Putin’s new war aims to focus mainly on the East – and more troops have been sent there to attack the two provinces.

Focusing on the east and south, Russia has also targeted other parts of Ukraine with missiles and air strikes.

On Monday, his defense ministry said it had destroyed six facilities supplying railways that were used to deliver foreign weapons to Ukrainian forces.

The Ukrainian military command said Russia was trying to bomb Ukraine’s railway infrastructure to disrupt arms supplies to foreign countries.

The head of the State Railways of Ukraine said that as a result of shelling by Russian missiles at five stations, the railwayman was killed and four others were injured.

President Volodymyr Zelensky said last night: “Obviously, every day – and especially today, when the third month of our resistance has begun – everyone in Ukraine cares about peace, about ending it all.

“There is currently no simple answer to this question.”
