Defence Minister Rustem Umierov has said that the Russians have been accumulating missiles for many months to attack Ukraine, they can continue attacking given their missile reserves, but for every crime of the Russian Federation, there will be a fair punishment.

Quote: “A large-scale missile attack on our land by the terrorist state. For many months, the Russians have been accumulating missiles for this purpose: strikes on residential buildings, shopping centres, and hospitals. On peaceful Ukrainian cities”.

Details: According to Rustem Umierov, “Russia, again and again, demonstrates to the whole world that it has no other goal than terror, than murder, than the genocide of Ukrainians”. “There will be a fair punishment for each of these crimes,” the minister stressed.

“It is obvious that with such missile reserves that the aggressor state has, they can and will continue such attacks,” Umierov said.
