PHOTOS: Tensions As Russian Invasion of Ukraine Take New Dimensions
There are palpable tensions that the perpetually Russian invasion of Ukraine might take drastic changes in the coming weeks.
Russia said Wednesday that supplies of long-range weapons to Ukraine would not deter Russian forces, but would increase tensions and escalate the conflict.
The comments from Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov came amid reports the United States is preparing a new round of aid that would include longer-range rockets to help Ukrainian forces fight off a Russian invasion.
This is a sequel to the ongoing recruits training on Salisbury plain in Wiltshire, Britain, with the Australian Armed Forces supporting the UK-led training of Ukrainian recruits.
Also expected to be included were Javelin anti-tank weapons, counter-drone and counter-artillery systems, armored vehicles, communications equipment, and enough medical equipment to support three field hospitals.
