TASS: Ukraine Requested US Deploys THAAD Missile Defense Systems in Kharkov


Editor’s note: Reckless of Kiev if true. If not true, then why are state-run TASS and its anonymous official source heightening the temperature?

Kiev has turned to the United States with a request to deploy several battalions of US THAAD anti-ballistic missile defense systems near Kharkov, a diplomatic source told TASS on Monday.

“Ukraine has turned to the United States with a request to deploy several battalions of THAAD mobile anti-ballistic missile defense launchers with radars near Kharkov on Ukrainian territory.

An AN/TPY-2 radar that makes part of the THAAD system is capable of tracking the aerospace situation over a substantial part of Russian territory and will enable Kiev and its NATO allies to ‘look deep” into the territory of Russia to a distance of up to 1,000 km,” the source specified.

The West and Kiev have recently been spreading allegations about Russia’s potential ‘invasion’ of Ukraine. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov castigated these claims as “empty and unfounded,” serving as a ploy to escalate tensions, pointing out that Russia did not pose any threat whatsoever to anyone.

However, Peskov did not rule out the possibility of provocations aimed at justifying such allegations and warned that attempts to use military force to resolve the crisis in southeastern Ukraine would have very serious consequences.

    The west is pushing, Russia is pushing back. This is not going to well. Time for people to drop their phones and look at what is going on.

      I’m sure that the US will train the Ukies to assemble those missiles themselves, and No US personnel will be present. Or at least I would not want to volunteer to set those Thaad’s up on Russia’s border. The secondary explosions will be herd, as far away as in Kyiv, as Russia will use a tactical nuke. To show Israel, that they are not the only ones, that will use them. Hint !

        It is true, Lots of Fusion devices have been used in the last decades…from Iraq ( Twice), Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Tainjin in 2015, etc.

          But the Nobel Nuke prize went to Israel when it took out 200 floors of high risers in NY and 180 floors of concrete, red iron, elevators, asbestos, desks, bodies, etc. etc. etc. were totally disintegrated. Now that was – Fusion !
