The Russian Defense Ministry has promised to ramp up “the scale of missile attacks” on the Ukrainian capital in response to what it called Ukraine’s “diversions on the Russian territory.”

The statement comes after Russian authorities accused Ukraine of launching airstrikes on residential buildings in the Bryansk region.

“The number and scale of missile strikes against targets in Kyiv will increase in response to any terrorist attacks or sabotage committed by the Kyiv nationalist regime on Russian territory,” said the statement.

It added that Russia had hit a “military” factory outside Kyiv late on Thursday using sea-based long-range Kalibr missiles.
