LONDON, June 5 (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin warned the United States in an interview broadcast on Sunday that Russia would strike new targets if the West supplied longer-range missiles to Ukraine for use in high-precision mobile rocket systems.
The United States has ruled out sending its own or NATO forces to Ukraine but Washington and its European allies have supplied weapons to Kyiv such as drones, Howitzer heavy artillery, anti-aircraft Stinger and anti-tank Javelin missiles.
President Joe Biden last week said Washington would supply Ukraine with M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems, or HIMARS, after he received assurances from Kyiv that it would not be used to target Russia. read more

Putin said the arms shipments were "nothing new" and changed nothing but cautioned that there would be a response if the United States supplied longer-range munitions for the HIMARS systems which have a maximum range of up to 300 km (185 miles) or more.

Ya know what dude? STFU. It’s been over 100 days and you can’t handle Ukraine. You really think you’re in a position to threaten the United States?

So long as he has nuclear weapons, yes.

The Russian military is proving to be an absolute joke. I am sure the Russian military would fight much harder for the homeland; but they couldn't handle the US by itself. Throwing in NATO countries (pitiful as some are) is just unfair. If it wasn't for Russia's massive nuclear arsenal we would already be rolling towards Moscow; and Putin knows it.

The real question comes on just how far we can push Putin before decides that his position is jeopardy and he decides to light the world up forever; rather than lose power?

LMAO.  After seeing his failures in Ukraine, all he has left are empty threats.

A proposal to ship grain through Belarus is something new.  At this point grain from both Ukraine and Russia have been blocked.  That's almost a quarter of the grain supply to the global markets.  International political pressure to address the grain supply will only increase so finding some sort of resolution can't be avoided.  

Precision weapons won't be nearly as effective now.  Russia has increased its use of electronic countermeasures.
