Russia to strike Ukrainian decision-making centers in case of Kiev attack — Medvedev

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia noted that these centers are not located on the territory of Kyiv

MOSCOW, June 3. /TASS/. Moscow will strike Ukraine’s "decision-making centers" if Kiev uses the weapons it had received from the United States to attack the territory of Russia, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview to Qatar’s Al Jazeera television.

"If those types of weapons are used against the territory of Russia, the armed forces of our country will have no other choice but to strike decision-making centers," he said.

"It is obvious what those decision-making centers are: the defense ministry, the general staff and so on," he continued. "But it should be understood that, in this case, the ultimate decision-making centers are regretfully not even on the territory of Kiev. That is why it is certainly a threat that should be reckoned with.".
