Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday that Moscow is ready to give a military-technical response if F-16 fighters fly over Ukraine.

"If we see that these planes fly over Ukraine and pose a threat to us, of course there will also be a military-technical response," Lavrov said in an interview with the RT television channel.

According to the Russian diplomat, the F-16 aircraft can be equipped to carry nuclear weapons. In this regard, Moscow had submitted "a very serious demarche" within the framework of the "nuclear five" panel of the UN Security Council, Lavrov said. 

On this occasion, the foreign minister denounced the constant West's pumping of weapons, ammunition, and vehicles to Kiev to attack Russian territory.
