The former commander of NATO forces in Europe, James Stavridis, said that the shelling of Russian military airports by Kyiv forces represents a dangerous turning point in the course of the Ukraine crisis.
Stavridis added in an interview with Bloomberg that Western politicians will work to ensure that the Kyiv regime no longer carries out such attacks in order to avoid escalation and direct NATO intervention in the Ukrainian crisis.
He indicated that the West would pacify the Kyiv regime by promising to provide it with advanced air defense systems and combat aircraft.
This happened after an attack by Kyiv troops on December 5 using Soviet marches on the Diaghilevo in Ryazan and the Ingels in Saratov, which resulted in the death of 3 servicemen, 4 were injured, and two aircraft received minor damage.
The Russian Defense Ministry confirmed that its forces carried out rocket attacks on several Ukrainian military command and control facilities, causing extensive damage.
