Dmitry Medvedev, the Deputy Head of Russia’s Security Council, has issued a stark warning that Russia will consider German missile manufacturing plants as "legitimate targets" if Germany supplies long-range Taurus missiles to Ukraine.
The statement came after Marie-Agnes Strack-Zimmermann, chair of the Defence Committee at the German Bundestag, urged the German government to provide such missiles to Ukraine.
Medvedev argued that such attacks on German plants would be "entirely within the norms of international law."
"The number of leading idiots in NATO countries is growing," Dmitry Medvedev wrote on Telegram, referring to the head of the German Defense Committee
"The head of the German Defense Committee with an unpronounceable surname - demands that Taurus missiles be immediately supplied to the Khokhlobanderites so that Kiev regime can strike at Russian territory to weaken the supply of our army. They say this is in accordance with international law. Well, in this case, attacks on German factories where these missiles are made will be fully consistent with international law," Dmitry Medvedev states.
He ended his message by saying that these people are pushing us toward a third world war.
