The Ukrainian forces will “pay back” Russia for “their aggression” and will sooner or later have the resources to target Crimea and the “Russian Black Sea fleet.”
The West have provided longer range weaponry which have the ability to destroy Russia’s Black Sea fleet and Ukrainian forces are preparing to up the ante with ferocious fighting to back Crimea.
The Kremlin has been given a very clear warning by the Ukrainian Deputy Defence Minister Volodymyr Havrylov.

During a visit to England where thousands of his forces are being trained by the British Army he warned Moscow that they will “have to pay back for their aggression.”
The Ukrainian Deputy Defence Minister said that Kyiv are “ready” for Vladimir Putin’s forces and told The Times newspaper, “We have a permanent threat from the Russian Black Sea fleet.
“Given the new technologies and capabilities we receive, we have to address this threat. We started with the operation on Snake Island.”
He added, “We are receiving anti-ship capabilities and sooner or later we will target the fleet. It is inevitable because we have to guarantee security to our people.
“We are ready to target them all over the Black Sea if we have that capability.”
Havrylov stressed, that “Sooner or later we will have enough resources to target Russia in the Black Sea and Crimea.
“We have to think very carefully how to do it in the right way.
“Crimea is Ukrainian territory, that’s why any target there is legitimate for us.”
The Ukrainian politician added, “Russia will have to leave Crimea if they wish to exist as a country.”
Russia’s former President Dmitry Medvedev, who is now deputy head of its security council, signalled that Moscow are ready to do whatever it takes.
Medvedev added, “Russia will achieve all its goals. There will be peace – on our terms.”
In February and March 2014 Russia invaded and then annexed Crimea from Ukraine and a decree was sigend making it part of Russia.
At the time Putin said that Russian troops in the Crimean peninsula were aimed “to ensure proper conditions for the people of Crimea to be able to freely express their will,” whilst Ukraine and other nations argue that such intervention is a violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty.
Putin has also made a “big escalatory step” as the world has been warned “that any attack on annexed Ukraine territories is like an attack on Russia.”
Any attack by Western forces on occupied territory in Ukraine will turn into World War Three, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel has warned.
Engel told NBC viewers, “This is not just a symbolic step.
“When other countries, the United States invaded Iraq, it was not to take Iraq forever and make it part of the United States.
“This is what Russia is doing. It is fighting a war of occupation and annexation.
“So, by taking this territory annexing it, making it part of Russia, Russia will say then that any attack on the territory that it controls inside Ukrainian territory is like an attack on Moscow.”
