Russia Vows To Take Measures After Reports Of US Plan To Arm Ukraine With Anti-Ship Missiles

The Russian military will take “preventive measures” if the US attempted to supply anti-ship missiles to Ukraine, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on May 20.

Peskov was commenting on a recent report by Reuters, which revealed that the US is working to supply Kiev forces with advanced anti-ship missiles.

“You know; many weapons are being supplied to Ukraine from the West. And you know our attitude very well. There is nothing new about this,” he said. “The Russian military thoroughly monitors all these supplies and takes preventive measures.”

Reuters has quoted three US government officials and two congressional sources as saying that Washington was working to directly handover anti-ship missiles to Kiev forces, or to supply them via the US European allies.

The anti-ship missiles in question are the Harpoon made by Boeing and the Naval Strike Missile (NSM) made by Kongsberg and Raytheon Technologies.

The Harpoon is a sea-skimming anti-ship missile that is equipped with a radar altimeter and a GPS-aided inertial navigation system, or INS. For terminal guidance, the missile is equipped with an active radar seeker. When launched from surface, the missile has a range of 124 to 278 kilometers depending on the version. The missile is armed with a 221 kg penetration high-explosive blast warhead.

According to Reuters, there are several issues keeping Ukraine from receiving the Harpoon. One of the main issues is the limited availability of platforms to launch Harpoons from a ground launcher. The missile was originally designed to be launched from naval vessels or warplanes.

Two US officials told Reuters that the US is currently working on potential solutions that included pulling a launcher off of a US Navy vessel.

The NSM is an anti-ship and land-attack missile that is equipped with a radar altimeter, a GPS-aided INS system and a terrain contour matching, or TERCOM, system. The missile is equipped with an imaging infrared homing seeker with an onboard target database for terminal guidance. It has a range of more than 185 kilometers and a 125 kilogram high-explosive fragmentation warhead.

It will be easier for the US to supply the NSM to Ukraine as a costal defense system based on the missile has been already developed. The system also takes less than 14 days training to operate.

Military experts and industry executives said that the Harpoon and the NSM both cost about $1.5 million per round, according to Reuters.

US officials told Reuters that Washington wants to supply these advanced missiles to Kiev forces to help Ukraine “defeat Russia’s naval blockade”. This ill-based justification is either the result of poor military knowledge by US officials, or a well thought out propaganda stunt.

Despite being capable, these anti-ship missiles won’t be enough to simply “defeat” Russia’s naval blockade on Ukraine’s ports. The reason for that is very simple, the Russian Navy has several other means to make sure that nothing can enter Ukrainian waters without Moscow permission, from submarines and fighter jets armed with anti-ship missiles to long-range costal defense system. Not to mention the Russian military ability to carrying out precision missile strikes on Ukraine’s ports from the land, air and sea.

US military planners without a doubt understand this very well. The real purpose behind the US plan to arm Kiev forces with anti-ship missile is simply to further escalate the conflict in Ukraine and make sure that it will not end any time soon.

40% of their slave owners were Jewish.

Try 80%. The majority of slave boat owners were Jewish.

ARABS they still sell slaves, the Arab Muslims do.

This real reason why Sudan had a civil war for whole of 1990’s. In past version of a single Sudanese state, it was common for the northern Arabs to routinely kidnap southern Negroes, mostly adolescents, for slavery. The southern part of Sudan eventually started to get organized and fight the north, and after decade it led to the partition of county into two states, North Sudan and South Sudan. This was good outcome for the southerners, as became far less vulnerable to raiding parties from north. That said, now that NATO has destroyed Libya, there is new supply for north African Arabs, as Libya has morphed into a vast open air slave market for transiting central Africans (would be EU immigrants) as very cheap slaves.

Most finance and insurance brokers behind leasing and covering losses of cargo ships for US slave trade were based in City of London, and you guessed it, these were mostly Ashkenazim Jew owned and run. Such facts are now deliberately hidden by slew of “fact checking websites”.

The percentage of slave owners who identified as jews was closer to 80% in the USA.

The government that created the slave trade and grew filthy rich from selling Africans to North America and enslaving its Indian slaves to grow opium to force the Chinese to buy. England was the slave trader and drug trader of the world.

This site routinely excuses the Jews, its commentators often protect the Jews (knowingly or unknowingly) by scapegoating Brits, etc with unsubstantiated claims.

Here is proof that Jews, not Europeans controlled the American Slave Trade:

It seems to me that within 6 – 8 weeks Ukraine could be a landlocked country with a strip of land around 100 km between its borders and the sea. I easily envisage a number of other difficulties for US/Ukraine parnerships’ plan of decimating Russian navy.

Putin needs to publicly announce terms of an acceptable armistice. It is clear that the sub-Rosa messaging via back channels is rejected by Ukraine which insists on complete territorial integrity. The USA will back that bet but the EU is fickle and will gladly sacrifice Ukrainian territory for peace and renewed commerce.

Don’t over reach Vlad. Make it more than reasonable. Base it on historic predicates. Only include areas with overwhelming Russian support (if any there be). Do Luhansk and Donetsk and Crimea meet that test? Who knows. But proposing more than that will erode the strength of the message: Russia is prepared to accept reasonable terms to end the war.

Don’t over reach but go public, loudly. Exchange all prisoners: ALL.

Get it done.

If not the USA missiles will soon put more of your ships on the bottom and the USA tank and aircraft manpads will continue to destroy your armor and your troops.

Do it now and do it loudly.

Funny I bet you were going on about how Russia was facing defeat in Ukraine and they would be pushed out. Now you are take what is Russian…..but only take or else! Right! If you have not woken to the fact that Russia does not give a shit about what you or the West thinks you will never get it.

Hell Russia does not even consider itself at war. Leaves the TV and lights and internet on! Kieve is as safe as any city in europe! Yet should they change their minds they can end all that! will they? nobody knows but them. But can they ? They sure as shit can ! They have taken what they have with just 200k guys! They can send 200k more or 600k or 800k….. you will still be going on about how Putin is about to be pushed out in a coup! Again! Also get used to the idea that the nazis from azov are not going to be swapped , doubtful they will give back the corpses once they have carried out their sentence! So take your ideas away do it now and do it quietly!

You clearly have not followed my consistent messaging.

You say Russia is not at war: you need say nothing else. You are delusional.

U have not seen the horror what Russia can let strip the best solution is for the Ukraine to surrender.

NO! STOP appeasing satan, kick him down and crush his head.

That is my argument as well. It seems a very substantial victory to me that Russia took the 4 SE provinces or most of them. I think the Russians might be pushing all out to try to get to the provincial borders of those provinces before moving hard to a ceasefire.

Sounds like Russia needs to arm other countries will anti-ship missiles also.

The US ships aren’t easy to hit with anti-ship weapons. The ships move in groups and they have super advanced detection systems and anti-missile systems. But still its a good idea that Russia should provide Americans opponents elsewhere with the hypersonic anti-ship missiles if they have them.

The only right message to the senders of these weapons : For every missile that hits a Russian vessel, a US/UK ship will be hit as a mirror response.

Russia is always overly polite, issuing warnings and explaining situations. Meanwhile, Jew-owned America continues to openly fuel the war with more lethal weapons. Russia is far too pliable. They must strike America hard. This nonsense has to stop. Russia, hurry up and launch an offensive. Attack!

very simple really, Russia releases a press statement saying that ANY Russian vessel ATTACKED by one of these missiles (regardless if it hits or not but if it is fired AT a Russian vessel) will result in the nearest USA warship being sunk, it will be a trade off for every missile fired AT a Russian navy vessel then one USA warship will be targeted in turn. – Z –

unfortunately it is already happening this is the start of WW3 only a matter of time before the nukes start flying.

That is the only way, or else the US by arming Ukraine with these will pick off a Russian ship every few months. Thing is Russia might not have the military capability to hit US ships.

kymsheba

I agree with you in that Russia MUST do this if they are attacked with these weapons as that IS DIRECT INVOLVEMENT by the USA, as for IF they can both Russia and China have HYPERSONIC MISSILES and CARRIER KILLER MISSILES which not only sink a CARRIER but the ENTIRE GROUP that is with it, so i don’t think Russia has to worry about IF they can do it only IF THEY WILL do it.

Wild proxytutes of Ukraine

US EU & UK are now fully convinced and feeling very comfortably safe as long as the attacks against Russia were neither launched nor fired from their territories given the fact of Putin’s inaction after the sinking of its flagship Moskva using the proxytute to fire the missiles within Ukraine. That inaction will certainly embolden the nazi-loving West to organise more brutal attacks using the same pattern expecting no repercussions from such atrocities. We have heard the loud barks and now eagerly awaiting for the spurred bite.

US weapons proliferation in Ukraine is completely irresponsible. Stingers and now anti-ship missile to the most corrupt state in Europe, and one likely to have a military collapse in near future. Great fucking idea. Corrupt Ukrop officials will make a fast buck on way out, and international arms dealers will love these toys, because the CIA will have no choice but to pay with a blank cheques to buy them back in few years time. CIA are always reactive, not responsive, and are NEVER long term strategists.

US is using Estonia as proxy to approach Israel for anti ship missiles to sent to Ukraine. Israel has been positive in response. This is elaborate bullshit to try and hide direct US-Israeli collusion to supply advanced weapons to Ukraine. Because, Israel has an Achilles Heel in form of its warplanes attacking Syria. Russia has mostly been a non participant in Israeli-Iranian-Hezbollah supply line war in Syria, but that could change soon, in terms of lot more SAA SAM fire at Israeli warplanes over Lebanon if these Israeli anti shipping missiles go to Ukraine.
