Moscow announces “appropriate response” to West’s “indirect war”

Sergei Shoigu, Minister of Defence of Russia, has warned of growing “threats” from the West as the German news website reported.

In a meeting with senior military officials, Sergei Shoigu stressed that these challenges required a prompt and adequate response. He named as a priority threat the Western-backed “indirect war” that Russia is experiencing on the part of Kyiv. He stressed that the West’s determined willingness to invest significant resources in Ukraine in order to influence the situation on the battlefield poses a serious risk of escalating the conflict.

In addition, Shoigu described Finland’s aspiration to join NATO and Sweden’s imminent accession as significant factors for destabilizing developments. He pointed out that this would lead to a doubling of land borders between Russia and the defense alliance. In addition, the Russian defense minister accused Poland of harboring territorial ambitions in western Ukraine.
