Timofeev said that there are French and UK military units operating in Ukraine and that the West are continuing to provide “large-scale military assistance to Kyiv.”

Timofeev said, “A full-scale war is not is not a foregone conclusion, but unfortunately, its likelihood is growing.”

He warned that a direct clash between Russia and the West is looming as officials from France and the UK have admitted there are military units operating in Ukraine.

He said, “A number of officials, particularly in France and the United Kingdom, have said that individual military units from NATO countries may be deployed to Ukraine.

“If they take part in military operations against Russian forces, they will become a legitimate target for our army.”

The RIAC director general added, “Let’s hope this possible escalation involves conventional arms and not nuclear weapons.

“Meanwhile, NATO is spending ten times as much as Russia – if not more – on defense.

“It’s certainly a dangerous scenario.”

He continued, “The NATO leadership has made statements that no troops will be sent to Ukraine, and a number of EU politicians have said that this is counterproductive. That means they aren’t united on the issue.

“As for Russia, we must take every possible scenario into account. We have the capacity to deter these threats.

“However, such a scenario will cause irreparable damage to everyone.”
