Shvytkin added that the West will receive a fitting rebuff in accordance with the norms of international law.
Yury Shvytkin, deputy chairman of the State Duma Defense Committee, advised “some in the US” to stock up on toilet paper if Russia had to respond to the invasion of its territorial waters. The politician made such a statement in response to the message that the United States plans to send its ship to the Black Sea and have already requested permission to pass from Turkey.
“Whoever encroaches on our territorial waters — the United States, Ukraine or some other state — will receive a fitting rebuff in accordance with the norms of international law … I think the answer may be quite serious and some in the US will have to stock up with toilet paper,” he quotes RIA “Novosti” the words of the deputy in the air radio Sputnik.
The parliamentarian is also confident that the Ukrainian sailors on two boats and a tug staged a conflict in the Kerch Strait intentionally. This action was directed by Western sponsors of the current Ukrainian government and the United States in particular, Shvytkin is convinced.
