The UK are expanding their training for Ukrainian forces and will train “marines and fighter jet pilots” as Downing Street are looking to further cripple the “Kremlin’s war machine.”

Downing Street are strategically targeting people and companies who are helping Vladimir Putin to “build his personal wealth machine” who are profiting from the war in Ukraine.

The UK are to also offer an intermediate training programme for Ukrainian marines as there is to be an “immediate surge” of military equipment to be sent to Ukraine which will include deadly longer range weapons which could pose a severe risk of Putin launching a tactical nuclear weapon.

The British government have a “two-pronged” approach to supply further military equipment to help counter the Russian Army’s Spring offensive.

The fighter jet pilot programme is a “long-term capability investment” and the training will help to ensure Ukrainian pilots will be ably to fly standard NATO sophisticated jets in the future should the West change their minds to send warplanes to Kyiv.

The UK operated F-35 and Typhoon jets which will not be sent to Kyiv, but the older multirole F-16s would be perfect for operations within Ukraine to fight against Russia.

Last week Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia warned Kyiv against using Western supplied longer range missiles.

He said that Moscow’s response may be “anything” and Putin has made this exceptionally clear to the West from the onset since the war started on 24 February, 2022.

Medvedev said that Russia will not set any limits, and depending on the type of threat Ukraine poses, Moscow are ready to use any type of weapon they chose in accordance with their fundamental policy on “Nuclear Deterence.”

The former Russian President warned that US that them sending more deadly weaponry will spark more retaliatory strikes from Moscow’s forces which includes Russia’s nuclear doctrine.

The deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia said in an interview with Kremlin’s state TV outlet RBC, “There will be no negotiations in this case, only retaliatory strikes.

“The whole of Ukraine remaining under Kyiv’s rule will burn.

“Our response may be anything.

“The President of Russia made this quite clear.

“We do not set ourselves any limits and, depending on the nature of the threats, we are ready to use all types of weapons.

“In accordance with our doctrinal documents, including the Fundamentals of State Policy on Nuclear Deterrence.”

Medvedev added, “I can assure you that the answer will be quick, tough and convincing.”

Medvedev referenced the Fundamentals of the State Policy on Nuclear Deterrence. He warned that under clause 19 pf the policy Russia can use nuclear weapons, “in the event of aggression against Russia with the use of conventional weapons, when the very existence of the state is threatened.”
