Moscow warns of ‘appropriate response’ after UK confirms missile deployment to Ukraine

The Kremlin has warned that its armed forces will make an “appropriate response” to the UK’s decision to supply Kiev with long-range missiles.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov condemned the move during a conference call with journalists on Thursday, pledging a Russian response.

“This will require an adequate response from our military, who will naturally make relevant decisions with this in mind,” added Peskov.

A CNN reported that the UK had supplied Ukraine with several Storm Shadow cruise missiles, citing several senior Western officials.

The missiles have a maximum range of 250km and give Ukrainian forces a new long-range strike capability ahead of a highly anticipated counter-offensive.

UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace is expected to announce to the House of Commons that the UK is sending Storm Shadow missiles to Ukraine.

The missile is “a real game-changer from a range perspective,” a senior US military official told CNN and gives Kiev a capability it has been asking for since the beginning of the war.
