MOSCOW – Russia will consider so-called NATO peacekeepers to be legitimate targets if they are deployed in Ukraine on the front lines of the battle.
This warning was conveyed by Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev on Friday (31/3/2023).
“They will become legitimate targets for our armed forces if they are placed on the front lines without Russian approval, with weapons in their hands and directly threatening us,” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel.
According to the official, the West’s real goal is to establish a ceasefire on the front in their favor.
“It is clear that the so-called NATO peacekeepers will only enter the conflict on the side of our enemy (Ukraine) … Let go of that third world war, which they are so afraid of when they speak,” Medvedev said.
Earlier in March, Hungarian Prime Minister (PM) Viktor Orban declared that the European Union (EU) was one step ahead of discussing military deployment of some kind of peacekeepers in Ukraine.
The fighting in Ukraine is heating up with Western weapons pouring into Kiev. There is no sign of peace talks any time soon.
That means, the war between Russia and Ukraine looks like it will be a long-term battle between the two sides.
