Moscow: The supply of offensive weapons to Kyiv will lead to a global catastrophe

ARK News… Russian State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin on Sunday warned that arms supplies to Ukraine by the United States and NATO for attacks on Russia will lead to the use of more powerful weapons in response by Russia.

Volodin said, in a post on the “Telegram” application, that “the supply of offensive weapons to the regime in Kyiv will lead to a global catastrophe,” according to what was reported by the German News Agency. Volodin added, "If Washington and NATO countries send weapons used to launch attacks on peaceful cities or attempts to occupy our lands, this will lead to the use of stronger weapons as a response by Russia," according to the Russian news agency "Tass".

Volodin criticized other countries' arguments that "nuclear powers have never used weapons of mass destruction in local conflicts." He explained that "these forces have never faced a situation in which the security of their citizens or the integrity of their lands is at stake."

The State Duma speaker called on members of the US Congress, the German parliament, the French National Assembly, and other European parliamentarians to realize their responsibility to humanity. "Washington and Brussels, with their decisions, are pushing the world into a catastrophic war and military operations that will be completely different from what they have seen so far," Volodin said.

Volodin concluded, "Given the technological superiority of Russian weapons, politicians in the West who make such decisions should realize that this could lead to a global catastrophe that would wipe out their countries."

Western allies pledged billions of dollars in weapons to Ukraine last week, but they failed to persuade Germany to withdraw the right to veto the supply of German-made Leopard battle tanks, which are in a group of NATO countries and their transfer to Ukraine requires approval from Berlin.
