On January 26, State Duma deputy Anatoly Wasserman reacted to the words of John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications of the White House National Security Council, that the United States does not neglect Russia’s warnings about crossing “red lines” in Ukraine.
Wasserman stressed that Kirby’s words are not true, because the weapons of NATO countries are used by the Armed Forces of Ukraine against the Russian military in the liberated territories.
“Kirby, as befits an Anglo-Saxon politician, is lying. For it is quite obvious that NATO weapons are already being used against the Russian Federation. That is, the restrictions we have indicated are already being violated in a completely open way, ”Duma TV quotes the words of the deputy for Izvestia.
The day before, the Russian Foreign Ministry commented on the words of Russia’s Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky that the West probably has not yet crossed all the “red lines” in Ukraine. The department noted that a hybrid war is going on against the Russian Federation, so talk about “red lines” is a thing of the past. The Foreign Ministry noted that the States have unequivocally declared their desire to inflict a strategic defeat on Russia and ignore reality.
On January 23, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the United States, threatening other states because of cooperation with Russia, is crossing all “red lines”. He added that Washington “does not shun anything”, using, among other things, economic manipulation and pressure on politicians whose children study in American educational institutions.
Russia’s special operation to protect Donbass, whose residents refused to recognize the results of the 2014 coup d’état in Ukraine, began on February 24, 2022. The decision to hold it was made against the backdrop of the aggravated situation in the region due to increased shelling by Ukrainian troops.
