A top Russian security official has issued a chilling warning to the West – promising the Kremlin will “fulfill” “threats” of a missile attack.

Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said Washington’s decision not to send Ukraine missile systems that could hit Russian targets was “reasonable.”

Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel that Russia had returned fire on Biden’s “criminal decisions” on targets “not at all in Kyiv.”

He said: “Biden said that the US will not supply Ukraine with missile systems capable of attacking Russia.


“Otherwise, in attacking our cities, Russian forces would fulfill their threat and attack the centers of these criminal decisions. Some of them are not in Kyiv at all. What comes next does not need to be explained …”

It comes after President Biden announced today that the US will not supply Kyiv with advanced long-range missile systems capable of reaching Russia.

Ukrainian officials have asked allies for longer-range systems, including the Multiple Launch Rocket System, or MLRS, which can launch a barrage of missiles hundreds of kilometers away.

“We will not send missile systems to Ukraine that will attack Russia,” Biden told reporters after arriving back at the White House after a weekend in Delaware.

Biden did not rule out providing a specific weapon system, instead appearing to place conditions on how they could be deployed. Biden and his team are working on a new military equipment package that is expected to be announced in the coming days.

The MLRS has been considered, but nothing with long-range strike capabilities outside of battlefield deployment, a senior administration official said.

The Ukrainian government has urged the West to stock up on more longer-range weapons to turn the tide in the war, which is now in its fourth month.

Biden wants to help Ukraine defend itself but was opposed to providing weapons that Ukraine could use to attack Russia.

CNN and The Washington Post reported Friday the Biden administration is leaning toward sending the MLRS and another system, the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, known as HIMARS, as part of an upcoming military aid package.

Thousands have been killed and millions more displaced in Ukraine since the February 24 Russian invasion, which Moscow calls a “military special operation.”

Biden’s government and US allies have been increasingly willing to provide Ukraine with longer-range weapons, including M777 howitzers, as Kyiv fights Russian forces with more success than intelligence officials predicted.

But US intelligence has also warned of growing risks, particularly given a mismatch between Russian President Vladimir Putin’s apparent ambitions and his military’s performance.

Ukraine has started receiving Harpoon anti-ship missiles from Denmark and self-propelled howitzers from the United States, Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said on Saturday.
