Britain sending Ukraine rocket launchers in wake of ‘chilling’ Putin strike threat
Daily Express says Vladimir Putin has threatened to hit new targets if the West supplies longer-range missiles to Ukraine in the fight against Russian invaders.
The warning came hours before the Ministry of Defence announced it would help Ukrainian fighters defend their country by sending rocket launchers that can hit targets 50 miles away.
Explosions rocked Kyiv in the first assault on the capital in weeks as Russian strategic bombers fired missiles from as far away as the Caspian Sea.
Putin said the “fuss” around Western weapon supplies to Ukraine was designed to drag out the conflict, as Russian troops struggle against dug-in defenders in the eastern Donbas region,
He warned that if the US dispatched longer-range missiles to the war zone, “we will strike at those targets which we have not yet been hitting”.
