Kremlin Says UK Is Directly Involved in Ukraine War

by Tommy Grant

Russia’s ruling class claims that the United Kingdom is directly involved in the war between Ukraine and Russia. Britain’s direct military involvement in Ukraine was never a secret, but one of the country’s establishment media outlets has now admitted it outright, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said on Thursday.

“In general, it’s no secret that the British really provide different forms of support [to Ukraine]. People on the ground and intelligence and so on and so forth,” Peskov said. “That is, they are actually directly involved in this conflict.” According to the British outlet, The Times UK,  Admiral Tony Radakin, the head of the UK armed forces, has helped make “battle plans” for Ukraine.

The Kremlin doesn’t have specific information related to Radakin, but “probably our military knows about this,” Peskov said.

Citing a Ukrainian military source, Radakin “is understood to have helped the Ukrainians with the strategy to destroy Russian ships and open up the Black Sea,” and is seen as “invaluable in coordinating support from other senior chiefs in NATO.”

The admiral also reportedly visited Kiev and met with President Vladimir Zelensky, to discuss Ukraine’s strategy and the ways in which the West could help push Kiev to a victory.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz this week inadvertently confirmed the presence of UK troops on the ground in Ukraine, noting that British fire control operators were directing Storm Shadow cruise missiles. A British lawmaker subsequently denounced Scholz’s comments as “a flagrant abuse of intelligence” that put UK personnel in danger and gave Russia a pretext to escalate. -RT

Russia has already said that it’s at war with the United States. Considering the West is supplying substantial amounts of weapons to Russia, the assertion that this is a “direct conflict” between NATO countries is realistic.
