A Russian state TV host warned Tuesday that President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine could expand to Poland if the US continued to arm Kyiv’s forces.

On a broadcast of Russia Channel 1’s “60 minutes,” TV host Olga Skabeyeva made the veiled warning saying that if the West continued to send aid to Ukraine the conflict could intensify, Newsweek reported.

“If God forbid, Americans deliver missiles that can travel 186 miles. Then we simply can’t stop,” the TV host said.

“We’ll go all the way to Warsaw.”

Skabeyeva referenced the M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), which the US started sending to embattled Ukraine last week.

Russia’s latest warning comes after the US pledged several more units to Ukraine.

The Polish foreign ministry has yet to make any comment on the threat.
