Russia spokesperson has declared US as a state “enemy” because of its continued military support to Ukraine.

The designation of the US as an ‘enemy’ state by Russia is a first in their diplomatic history as the Ukraine war intensifies.

During a press briefing on Tuesday, Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson for Russian President Vladimir Putin, stated, “We are now an enemy country for them, just as they are for us.”

This remarks comes after the claims made by Scott Ritter former intelligent officer who was convicted with sexual assault, denied to enter Russia on the instruction of the US department and had his passport confiscated by border officials.

“There are situations where a U.S passport may be revoked.  These include, but are not limited to, laws and regulations affecting passport usage by individuals with active warrants or criminal records, fraud concerns, tax debt, and child support arrears,” the spokesperson said.

US president Joe Biden allowed Ukraine to strike specific locations in Russia, backing them with weapons. Putin however placed a warning on western counties that he could arm other countries with weapons to attack them.

Kremlin earlier referred to the US and other Western nations that have backed and weaponized Ukraine while imposing sanctions on Russia as “unfriendly states” or “opponents.” Putin also stated that Ukraine is merely a tool in their hands.
