The Russian people are indescribably furious at the sinking of their flagship in the Black Sea, the missile cruiser “Moskva”, and are now openly saying on TV that they are in World War 3 with the United States.
Barrages of Russian missiles were launched late last night on at least 8 different “fronts” in Ukraine, hitting targets in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Nikolaev, and elsewhere, causing thunderous explosions, reports Halturnerradioshow.com.
The video below shows the sky over Kharkiv at approximately 03:45 in the morning.
On Russian television, the mood was fierce, and the comments made were concrete: Russia is already in World War III, Russia is at war with the United States/NATO, and more. Here’s a small portion:
The cruiser has sunk.
There were many casualties on board. There was a monstrous explosion of ammunition and missiles.
I think there could be several hundred dead, if not almost the entire crew.
So there will be a backlash.
That same source then SPECULATED what he believes will be the Russian response:
The RF forces will target Bankovaya, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, the GUR building, and other facilities in Kiev.
In addition, an attack on the Baltic States or on arms convoys in Poland or the Czech Republic is possible.
There will be attacks by the RF forces on bridges along the western border of Ukraine, on bridges in Kiev, and on bridges over the Dnieper.
There will be impacts on railway bridges in western Ukraine and on transport hubs and transitions, connecting stations, and so on.
There will be impacts on the barracks and control centers. Rocket attacks are being prepared from all corners of the world. They will strike from the Caspian Sea, from the Black Sea, from the Crimea, even from the Baltic Sea, and from Kaliningrad. There will be shelling from Belarus artillery and Belarus missiles.
The attack will consist of three waves, massive volleys, there will be up to a thousand missiles at once.
Heavy artillery, RSZO. In the Kiev, Kiev, Kharkiv, Nikolaev region.
He rounded off his speculation by saying:
THE WAR GOES TO A NEW LEVEL!!!
UPDATE – 1
Russian Defense: We will increase the number and scale of missile strikes in Kiev.
Russian Defense: More than 30 Polish mercenaries were killed in Kharkov.
Among the prisoners of war in Ukraine are soldiers from NATO countries, Russian Federation Council Senator Klimov said.
“We already have prisoners of war among the military personnel of NATO countries, we will show all this when we conduct trials, and then the whole world will see what really happened,” he said.
UPDATE – 2
The United States has received an official diplomatic demarche (note) from Moscow stating, succinctly, “Russia demands that the United States stop arming Ukraine” and then threatens “unpredictable consequences” if that arming Ukraine continues. .
This is stated in an official diplomatic note from Moscow.
Meanwhile, reports are also coming out that the missile factory of the Ukrainian navy in Kiev was the target of the bombing.
A factory that manufactures the Neptune missile for naval targets was destroyed Friday night by Russian long-range missiles, the AFP reporter said on the spot.
Russia has confirmed it is behind the bombing of the factory, a missile factory just outside Kiev.
The factory was hit by five missiles after two Ukrainian missiles sank the Russian flagship Moskva in the Black Sea.
An employee was in the office and was knocked over by the bang, the owner of a nearby workshop tells AFP.
Its owner, Ukroboronprom, says the Neptune missiles are made in the factory, and that it is the same missile Ukraine claims it used when it sank Russia’s flagship Moskva. Specifically, two R-360 Neptune cruise missiles were used for naval targets, Ukraine said.
