Vladimir Putin has warned that he will order missiles strikes on NATO military airbases which have F-16s ready to be deployed to Ukraine.

Mad Vlad has said the strikes will hit the supersonic fighters should they carry any nuclear weapons, even though no Western government has mentioned anything about nukes.

However, in February the Commander of the Joint Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Seriy Nayev announced that amid the “technical assistance” of partner countries supplying high-tech weaponry this has provided Ukraine with a “multiple advantages.”

During a visit to Torzhok in the Tiver region, Putin told pilots that Russia is ready to destroy any F-16s sent from NATO members “wherever they are.”

The Russian despot said, “Of course, if they are used from airfields of third countries, they become a legitimate target for us, no matter where they are.

“We will destroy their planes in the same way that we destroy their tanks, armoured vehicles, and other equipment, including multiple launch rocket systems.”

Putin added, “The F-16s are also carriers of nuclear weapons, and we will also have to take this into account when organising combat work.”

There is growing concern within NATO that there could be direct confrontation with Russia after Putin said on 17 March, that “anything is possible in today’s world.”

Ukraine is set to receive military assistance that will include F-16 aircraft and missiles that a range of hitting targets of between 300 to 500 kilometers.

The Dutch Defense Minister Kajsa Ollongren said last month, “The Netherlands Ministry of Defence is readying six additional F-16 fighter aircraft for delivery to Ukraine.

“This brings the total number to 24 F-16s. Ukraine’s aerial superiority is essential for countering Russian aggression.”

Nayev said, “In subsequent military assistance packages, Ukraine expects F-16 aircraft and missiles with a range of hitting targets of 300-500 kilometers, which will allow the Ukrainian Defense Forces to achieve even greater success on the battlefield and liberate our territory from the enemy.”
