Kremlin threatens US after ATACMS attack on Crimean beach kills and injures many

24th Jun 24 11:32 am

The Russian Defence Ministry has said that Ukraine used US provided missiles to attack Crimea which resulted in 151 people being injured leaving at least five killed.

A beach at Sevastopol in Crimea was full of people when shrapnel rained down on the Russian citizens.

Screaming Russian tourists told people to “run” after five US supplied Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) were used to attack Crimea.

Russian air-defences took down four of the ATACMS and the fifth one exploded in the air which led to “numerous casualties among civilians in Sevastopol.”

The Russian Defense Ministry claimed in a post on Telegram, “All flight missions for the American ATACMS operational-tactical missiles are entered by American specialists based on their own US satellite intelligence data.

Therefore, responsibility for the deliberate missile attack on civilians in Sevastopol lies primarily with Washington, which supplied these weapons to Ukraine, as well as the Kyiv regime, from whose territory this attack was launched.”

“Such actions will not go unanswered.”

Moscow issued a response and warned the US for supplying Ukraine with the ATACMS which were used in Crimea.

The Kremlin said, “Responsibility for the deliberate missile attack on civilians in Sevastopol lies primarily with Washington, which supplied these weapons to Ukraine, as well as the Kyiv regime.

“Such actions will not go unanswered.”

The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin is being kept up to date over the attack and he is in “constant contact” the officials on the ground in Crimea.

There are also fears in the Kremlin and amongst military bloggers that the Ukrainian ‘aviation armada’ of F-16 fighter jets will blitz Russian military targets in Crimea.

Ukrainian forces have destroyed Russia’s air-defence systems which have failed to shoot down US supplied missiles.

US supplied ATACMS which is a ballistic missile have blown up various Russian targets and have a range of 186 miles.

The US supplied ATACMS blew up a radar system and a S-400 air-defence battery at a military base in Sevastopol, May.

The Kremlin fears that Ukrainian forces are taking out the radar systems and air-defences before launching an armada of an F-16 fighter jet squadron to take out most of Russia’s bases in Crimea.

A military blogger said, “First comes the stage of overcoming our defences with ATACMS, then NATO aviation based on the F16 comes into play, under the wings of which there is a wide range of ammunition.

“Observing the latest events, one can indeed come to the conclusion the US under the Ukrainian flag is clearing the skies for the use of the aviation armada prepared in advance in Romania and Poland.”
