Moscow's response will be lightning-fast if someone wants to intervene in the events in Ukraine and will create unacceptable for Russia threats of a strategic nature, said President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with the Council of Legislators.
“We have all the tools for this” one that no one else can boast of. And we will not brag, we will use them if necessary. We have made all the decisions on this matter,»,— he said.
Russia has been conducting a special military operation in Ukraine since February 24. Three days after it began, Putin ordered that Russia's deterrence forces, which include strategic nuclear forces, be brought into a special containment regime. On February 28, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu reported that the order had been carried out and the duty forces of the Strategic Missile Forces, the Northern and Pacific Fleets, and Long-Range Aviation had begun combat duty with reinforced personnel.
In addition, on April 20, Russia announced the first successful test launch of the Sarmat intercontinental missile. Putin, who watched the tests via video link, noted that there are no analogues to this complex “in the world and will not be for a long time to come.” “This truly unique weapon will strengthen the combat potential of our armed forces, reliably ensure the security of Russia from external threats and make those who, in the heat of frantic, aggressive rhetoric, try to threaten our country, — said the president.
The fact that Russia will “answer with lightning speed” on possible threats, he said after statements by the British authorities. For example, British Deputy Defense Minister James Hippie noted that London considers strikes against “legitimate military targets” acceptable; on the territory of Russia with the help of Western weapons to disrupt the supply of the Russian army. The Ministry of Defense, after the statement of the British Minister, warned that the Russian military “are on round-the-clock readiness to launch retaliatory strikes with long-range precision weapons at the relevant decision-making centers in Kyiv.”
