(Natural News) Ukraine’s recent drone strikes deep in Russian territory could escalate the conflict as Russia may conclude the strikes were carried out with help from the United States.
The drone strikes carried out by Ukraine were allegedly in retaliation for Russian attacks on Ukraine’s energy infrastructure. (Related: Ukrainian Drones Strike Air Force Bases in Russia as Kremlin Warns NATO of Possible Nuclear Escalation.)
On Monday, December 5, Ukrainian drones attacked two military airfields – Engels-2 airbase and Dyagilevo airbase. The bases were reportedly attacked because they harbor Tu-95 and Tu-60 bombers that Russia has used in air strikes on Ukrainian targets.
Several bombers were damaged in the Engels 2 attack. During the attack on Dyagilevo, an oil truck exploded, killing three Russian soldiers and injuring another five. The base in Dyagilevo is less than 240 kilometers from Moscow.
The next day, a third Russian airbase – Kursk-Khalino base – was attacked by a Ukrainian drone. The base is approximately 60 miles north of the Ukrainian border and 120 miles north of the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv. City officials released images of black smoke over Kursk Vostochny Airport, which includes Kursk-Khalino Air Force Base. The region’s governor confirmed that an oil tank was attacked and burst into flames. Fortunately there were no injuries.
Ukraine has never publicly claimed responsibility for drone strikes and other attacks in Russia, and it has still not claimed a role in the recent attacks.
If officials in Kiev thought the drone strikes would affect Russia’s ability to conduct airstrikes on Ukraine, they were wrong.
After the attacks on Engels-2 and Dyagilevo, the Kremlin responded with what it called a “massive attack on Ukraine’s military control system.” Ukrainian officials claim Russian strategic bombers hit the country’s energy infrastructure – the Kremlin claims it has a military justification for targeting.
In connection with the airstrikes, Russian ground forces in southern and eastern Ukraine continued to attack Ukrainian military targets with artillery.
Russia could involve America in Ukrainian drone strikes
Russia has placed the blame for these attacks and the deaths and damage they caused squarely on Ukraine’s shoulders. However, Harley Schlanger of the LaRouche organization warned that the Kremlin may consider extending responsibility for these attacks to the United States.
“The question is, what if they conclude that these attacks were planned, organized and carried out by the United States or with US assistance?” asked Schlanger. “This would be a significant escalation as the Russians have stated that they would view any attack on their territory as a potential existential threat.”
Several US officials have denied responsibility for the attacks, saying it does not encourage or enable Ukraine to conduct military action inside Russia.
“We are not allowing Ukraine to strike beyond its borders,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said. “Everything we do, everything the world does to support Ukraine, is in support of Ukraine’s independence, its sovereignty, its territorial integrity. We are providing Ukraine with what it needs on its own territory, on Ukrainian soil, to confront Russian aggressors.”
But Russian officials accept Washington’s refusal to take responsibility for Ukraine’s strikes.
“You shouldn’t say that the US and NATO aren’t participating in this war. They are directly involved in it,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. “Not only by providing weapons, but also by training personnel. They train their military on your territory, on the territories of Great Britain, Germany, Italy and other countries.”
