Russian President Vladimir Putin has now publicly warned on television that if western (i.e. NATO) countries continue sending weapons to Ukraine, Russia “will draw the approriate conclusion and use NEW WEAPONRY, of which we have plenty, and we will strike targets that have not yet been struck” — Like NATO Capital cities?
Here is the actual televised interview in original Russian language, with English sub-titles for translation. (Click Here)
UPDATE 2:52 PM EDT —
Just found out, when President Putin did this live interview, it was carried live on . . . ready for this . . . . ALL Ukraine TV channels! ALL OF THEM!
Russia took over Ukraine’s broadcast media ! ! ! ! !
Ukraine can’t even keep control over their own TV’s! ! ! !
Laughable excuse for a country.
ANALYSIS AND EDITORIAL OPINION
Two key phrases in his remarks:
1) “New weaponry” . . . .
2) “. . . Strike targets that have not yet been struck . . . “
At present, Russia has already used in Ukraine, at least one of each and every CONVENTIONAL weapon in its arsenal. Kalibr cruise missiles. Zircon hypersonic missiles, and the thermobaric TOS-2.
So what’s left in their arsenal of “new” weapons to use? Nuclear-tipped versions of Kalibr and Zircon, perhaps?
Or does he mean the entire range of Russian nuclear weaponry? Battlefield tactical nukes? Full-blown nuclear ICBM’s? The dreaded SARMAT?
The hint we have at the answer to the questions above, comes from the second key phrase “. . . strike targets that have not yet been struck.”
Notice he did NOT say “inside Ukraine.”
Among the targets that have not yet been struck are the nations actually providing the weapons deliveries to Ukraine; primarily the US, UK, France, Germany, and Poland.
Of those, hitting the U.S. is most vital; because once the U.S. is hit, NATO falls apart. If the Europeans see that America can no longer help them, they will tuck tail and run . . . so fast, they might even leave skid marks.
So, ladies and Gentlemen, we are being publicly warned, yet again, to stop interfering.
For the word of God is alive, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intents of the heart. There is no creature that is not revealed in His sight, for all things are bare and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account. (Hebrews 4:12-13 Modern English Version)
