Russia is ready to show a tough response to the supplies of NATO weapons to Ukraine, State Duma deputy and head of the Russian delegation at the international talks in Vienna, Konstantin Gavrilov said, RIA Novosti reports.
According to Gavrilov, Moscow will immediately respond if Washington and NATO countries supply Kyiv with weapons capable of striking cities deep inside the Russian territory.
"Don't say later that we didn't warn you,” Gavrilov concluded at a meeting of OSCE member states on issues of military security and arms control.
