Kremlin Responds To Ukraine Intel Chief's Threat To "Kill Russians Anywhere"

•, by Tyler Durden

In reference to the August car bombing death of Daria Dugina (Yahoo underscored in its lead-in that "U.S. intelligence has attributed Dugina's killing to the Ukrainian government"), Gen. Budanov offered the following ultra-provocative statement:

"we've been killing Russians and we will keep killing Russians anywhere on the face of this world until the complete victory of Ukraine."

He seemed to be owning up to Ukraine being behind the assassinations. What Russia calls "terrorism, we call liberation," he had said when asked whether Kiev was behind the attacks, which also included the April cafe bombing and death of Russian blogger Vladlen Tatarsky.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov blasted the threatening remarks, calling them "truly heinous" while "vigorously" condemning them. In the Monday response, Peskov said, "What Budanov said is a direct confirmation that the Kiev regime isn't only sponsoring terrorist activity, but is a direct organizer of this activity."
