Russia: NATO is opening a new phase of tension

The Kremlin pointed out that these aggressions by the Atlantic Alliance “will inevitably have their consequences.”

The Kremlin accused NATO members on Thursday of opening a new phase of tension in their antagonism with Russia by encouraging Ukraine to use Western weapons against targets on Russian territory.

“In recent days and weeks NATO members have entered a new phase of escalating tensions. And they do it consciously,” Dmitri Peskov, spokesman for the Russian Presidency, said in his daily press conference.

According to Peskov, the Atlantic Alliance incites Ukraine “to continue this senseless war.”

“All of this will inevitably have its consequences and, as a final result, will cause great damage to the interests of those countries that decided to escalate tensions,” he warned.

Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened Europe on Tuesday with “serious consequences” if NATO countries allow Ukraine to use Western weapons against Russia.

“These representatives of NATO countries, especially in Europe, especially in small countries, must be aware of what they are playing with. They must remember that, as a rule, these are states with small but densely populated territories,” Putin said.

The American Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, assured yesterday in Moldova that the United States had not encouraged Ukrainian attacks against Russian territory.

“We have not encouraged or facilitated attacks outside Ukraine. But (…) Ukraine has to make its own decisions about the best and most effective way to defend itself,” said the diplomat.

The United Kingdom recently authorized Ukraine to hit enemy territory with its weapons and France seems to have supported that position, but, despite the insistence of the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, the United States, Germany and most of kyiv's allies have not yet They have allowed it.
