Russia threatened Ukraine with missile strikes: sources

Baku – APA. In case Ukraine fires missiles in the direction of Crimea, Russia will take retaliatory action, sources in Ukraine’s Defense Ministry told local newspaper Zerkalo nedeli.

According to the sources, Russia’s defense ministry has handed over a letter in this regard to the Ukrainian military attaché to Russia, warning that Russia will take retaliatory action in case Ukraine fires missiles in the direction of Crimea.

Moscow protested against Ukraine’s plans to carry out missile tests near Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014 following the toppling of a pro-Russian Ukrainian president, raising the temperature in the dispute between the two countries.

Russian aviation agency Rosaviatsia said late on Friday it has received a notification from Ukraine on missile tests in “Russia’s sovereign air space” on December 1 and 2 in the region of Simferopol in Crimea.

Russia’s Defence Ministry handed over a protest note to the Ukrainian defense attache, while Oleksander Turchinov, Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council Secretary, dismissed Moscow’s claims that Kiev had breached international agreements.

  1. Putin is well within his right to retaliate if those Ukraine missiles hit Crimea. Crimea is part of Russia once again and Russia has military installations which have been there for quite sometime. Those military bases house nuclear weapons and Putin doesn’t want them getting into the wrong hands.

    Funny how they say it’s Putin who is the aggressor when he is just protecting his mother Russia and her peoples. Kinda like how Israel is portrayed in the media….she is always the aggressor when the truth is she is just protecting herself from attack.

    If Canada was doing this type of aggression (like Ukraine to Russia or Palestine to Israel) to the USA…..would the media portray the USA as the aggressor if she retaliated with a show of force? Good Ghandi…..
