After President Joe Biden said the U.S. will not send to Ukraine rocket systems that can reach into Russia, a former Russian president has called that view “sensible”.
Dmitry Medvedev, who led Russia from 2008 to 2012, warned if the country’s cities were “attacked,” Moscow would have to follow through on its “threat to strike the centres taking these criminal decisions.”
“Some of them are not in Kyiv at all,” he added, signalling the message was intended for nations further afield than Ukraine. “There is no need to explain what would happen next.”
Medvedev’s comments followed reports that the Biden administration was considering sending advanced long-range rocket systems to Kyiv.
