The Kremlin has warned on Thursday countries who continue to “pump weapons” into Ukraine will “threaten the security of the continent and provoke instability.”
Western allies have been accused of waging a proxy war against Russia, Moscow claims.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said today, “In itself, the tendency to pump weapons, including heavy weapons, to Ukraine and other countries are actions that threaten the security of the continent and provoke instability.”

Putin issues a chilling warning to the West nuclear weapons will be ‘lightening quick’ if anyone continues to interfere in Ukraine
London is not ‘protected’ from a nuclear attack and would not stand a chance as we cannot ‘intercept Russian ballistic missiles’
His is in response to what the British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, said on Wednesday, that countries who oppose the Russian invasion must “double down” on support, and continue supplying heavy weapons to Ukraine.
Peskov then spoke out about Elon Musk buying Twitter and said that Russia will wait and see how his ownership will affect the platform.
Vladimir Putin has issued the West with a chilling threat that if any country interferes with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine “we have tools no one can boast of.”
Putin’s patience has run out and he is furious that the West are meddling in the Ukraine war and warned on Wednesday the West must stop sending weapons to Ukraine and threatened, “we don’t brag, we will use them.”
However, the British Defence Secretary Ben Wallace played down Putin’s latest rant, he said that people should not be “too alarmed.”
Wallace told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that Putin is purely trying to “lay the groundwork” for an announcement to “cover his failure.”
“He’s going to have to admit if he wants to mobilise more of the Russian people that it is a war,” he said.
“He’s going to have to admit it by trying to blame everybody else, I think that is what he was rolling the pitch for.”
Wallace added that NATO does takes the Russian President’s threats “incredibly seriously” but “we also must not let ourselves be intimidated from defending Ukraine and protecting the people from brutality.”
