Medvedev: NATO could become legitimate target over Ukraine aid

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev warned on Tuesday that NATO states could become a "legitimate target" in case they supply Ukraine with Patriot anti-air missile systems and send NATO personnel to the country.

"If, as Stoltenberg’s hinted, NATO supplies the Kiev fanatics with Patriot defense systems – as well as the alliance’s personnel – they will immediately turn into legitimate targets for our armed forces," Medvedev threatened in a tweet. The Russian official accused the alliance of violating other countries' sovereignty by starting coups around the world and murdering "tens of thousands of civilians."

Earlier, NATO Secretary General welcomed Germany's offer to provide Poland with Patriot defense systems after an explosion on its territory and noted that it was up to Berlin to decide if it wants to grant Warsaw's wishes and send Patriot systems to Ukraine instead.
