Ukrainian intelligence chief has warned that they will hunt and “will keep killing Russians anywhere” in the world and they will only stop once there is “complete victory of Ukraine.”
Major General Kyrylo Budanov issued the chilling statement after Moscow launched the more aggressive drone, rocket and missile strikes across Ukraine including Kyiv.
The chilling statement has caused fury in Moscow and Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “This is a truly monstrous statement.”

Major General Budanov was asked that US intelligence suggests that Ukraine was behind the killing of Russian journalist Darya Dugina who was blown up in a car bomb last August and is the daughter of far right Putin ally Alexander Dugin.
A very calm Budanov was not interested in providing any comment over the killing of a non-enemy combatant, but he added, “All I will comment on is that we’ve been killing Russians and we will keep killing Russians anywhere on the face of this world until the complete victory of Ukraine.”
Peskov said this is “direct confirmation that the Kyiv regime is not just sponsoring terrorist activity, but is the direct organiser of this activity.
“And this statement gives another very important characteristic of the Kyiv regime.”
Putin’s spokesman added, “We strongly condemn such statements.
“We have a special service that will do everything it should against the background of such statements. No one should have any doubts about this.
“Next, we will be very closely monitoring the reaction of European capitals today.
“And also Washington. Especially Washington.
“For it is very difficult to imagine that such terrorist statements from Kyiv can remain without discussion.
“Therefore, today we will wait for these discussions.
“And finally, this statement by Mr Budanov once again confirms the correctness of President Putin’s decision to launch a special military operation.”
Last week Ukraine sent another ominous threat to Moscow that they will liberate Crimea in any way that they “deem necessary” and warn they will not “ask anyone for permission.”
