The administration of Russian President Vladimir Putin recently issued a dire warning to the West following reports that Ukraine has utilized U.S.-supplied missiles on Russian territory.

The backlash emerged after Ukrainian forces targeted Russia’s far western city of Belgorod with M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), according to Knewz.com.

Citing the Russian state-controlled newspaper RIA Novosti, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov released a statement saying, “We warn American politicians against their miscalculations, which could have fatal consequences. For unknown reasons, they underestimate the seriousness of the resistance they may receive. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly spoken out on this topic.”

The attack, which either coincided with or triggered this stern response, occurred on the same day.

Putin ally Evgeniy Poddubny took to his Telegram account, reporting a HIMARS strike and noting it as “the first recorded use of HIMARS MLRS during an attack by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Belgorod.”

He cited a Russian correspondent who claimed that Russian air defense forces successfully repelled “enemy attacks.”

In another update, Poddubny mentioned that “the Russian Army’s air defense crews destroyed more than ten missiles in the sky over the Belgorod region,” asserting that “the combat use of this type of weapon is not possible without Western military specialists.”

The U.S. granted Ukraine permission to use American weapons on Russian territory in a limited capacity last week, as confirmed by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

He stated, “As you've heard, he's (Biden) approved the use of our weapons for that purpose (Russian forces building up the border and attacking Ukraine).” Blinken noted that President Biden’s decision followed a formal request by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“Ukraine came to us and asked for the authorization to use weapons that we're providing to defend” against increased aggression in the Kharkiv region, Blinken explained. “Going forward, we'll continue to do what we've been doing, which is as necessary…adapt and adjust,” he concluded.

Leading up to this decision, Knewz.com reported that French President Emmanuel Macron had also indicated support for Ukraine using NATO weapons behind Russian lines.

In a joint press conference with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Macron remarked, “The Russian forces are on Russian territory just over the border attacking Ukrainian territory. The front line is more or less the border line, and if you cannot attack the Russian forces on the other side of the front line because they are on the other side of the border, then, of course, you really reduce the ability of the Ukrainian forces to defend themselves.”

Upon hearing the request, Putin threatened the West with all-out war.
