Moscow threatens to destroy NATO vehicles transporting weapons to Ukraine.
“The United States նրա and its NATO allies continue to supply weapons to Ukraine. “I would like to note that any vehicle of the North Atlantic Alliance that has arrived in the country with weapons or material means intended for the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is considered a legitimate target of destruction by us,” said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
Speaking at a long-distance meeting, Minister Shoigu also provided details on the situation in Mariupol, which has been under siege by Russian troops for weeks. The Azovstal giant factory in the city is under the control of hundreds of Ukrainian servicemen, who refuse to surrender. According to the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, the Russian side continues to persuade them to lay down their weapons.
“According to the instructions of the Commander-in-Chief, the remains of the militants located in the industrial zone of the Azovstal plant are securely blocked in that area. Numerous offers to the nationalists to release civilians, to lay down their arms, to guarantee their lives, and to be treated with dignity in accordance with international law have been ignored. “We are continuing those attempts,” Shoigu said.
