The Special Military Operation by Russia in Ukraine, which NATO continues to interfere with, got very much worse overnight. A particular escalation too place overnight that has alarm bells ringing in the heads of all thinking people.
Russia will treat western arms shipments to Ukraine as legitimate military targets, deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov says. "We warned [the US] of consequences from the insane transfer to Ukraine of weapons like mobile anti-aircraft systems, anti-tank missiles, and so on."
Now, Ryabkov's statement does not reveal if treating weapons shipments as legitimate military targets means hitting such weapons inside Ukraine, or taking them out before they get to Ukraine, which means hitting them in another country.
No matter how one looks at it, this is now an aggressive new escalation.
