Italian Defense Minister Crosetto says he has never been biased towards Russia
ROME, January 29 – RIA Novosti. Italian Defense Minister Guido Crosetto declarationThat he had no prejudices against Russia and even hoped that he would be an ally of the West in the past.
Arguing for military aid to Ukraine at a public event in Rome on Friday, Crosetto said that if Russian tanks reach Kiev and European borders, the Third World War will begin.
Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev sharply criticized this attitude of the head of the Italian Ministry of Defense. He said on Saturday on his Telegram channel that the deliveries of armored vehicles and other weapons to Ukraine would not prevent the Third World War, because if the war broke out, tanks or warplanes would no longer be used.
Russia had previously sent a note to NATO countries for arms supplies to Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any cargo containing weapons for Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation stated that NATO countries are “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine. Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov noted that pumping weapons into Ukraine from the West does not contribute to the success of the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations and will have a negative effect. Lavrov noted that the United States and NATO are directly involved in the conflict in Ukraine, “including not only the supply of weapons, but also the training of personnel … on the territory of Great Britain, Germany, Italy and other countries.”
