Strong warning from Dmitry Medvedev

Strong warning from Dmitry Medvedev

Nuclear warning issued to Ukraine over Crimea

What, for example, if Ukraine becomes part of NATO? Deputy head of the Russian Security Council, former President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev gave an interview about the Ukrainian crisis. In addition, Medvedev criticized the policies of the European Union, NATO and the United States. According to him, Ukraine is part of Russia.

Any Ukrainian attempt to capture Crimea could be met with a nuclear response by Moscow, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has warned. He insisted, however, that Kiev’s claims that it could seize the peninsular are nothing more than hollow threats.  

Speaking to journalists on Friday, Medvedev dismissed the likelihood that Ukraine would carry out an attack on Crimea, asserting that “this is propaganda and should be treated that way, during war it always exists.” 

Medvedev, who currently serves as the deputy head of Russia’s Security Council, added that “if we talk about some sort of serious offensive that is associated with an attempt to retake Crimea, it is quite obvious that this is the basis for the use of all means of protection, including those provided for by the fundamentals of the Doctrine of Nuclear Deterrence, when the use of any types of weapons against Russia threatens the existence of the state itself.” 

Crimea became part of Russia in 2014 after the local population voted overwhelmingly in favor of the move following a Western-backed coup in Kiev. Ukraine and its Western supporters have refused to recognize the step, and Kiev has repeatedly vowed to retake the peninsula by force. 

Medvedev stressed that any attempt to break off part of Russia would be considered as a threat to the nation’s existence. “Therefore, draw your own conclusions. There are absolutely grounds for using any weapon here. Absolutely any kind. And I hope our ‘friends’ across the ocean understand this,” the former president said.

He also stressed that the prospect of a nuclear conflict has not faded, but instead continues to grow. Every day that Western weapons are delivered to Ukraine, the closer the world moves towards a “nuclear apocalypse,” Medvedev cautioned, adding that “it doesn’t mean that this will happen, but the horsemen of the apocalypse continue to move.” 

The former Russian leader also claimed that without military aid and “direct cash injections” from NATO, the “Kiev regime would not have survived even a week” against Russian forces. The greater the supply of weapons, the more difficult the situation becomes, Medvedev added.  

He stated that it is “obvious” Kiev is preparing some sort of new offensive, although Russia’s General Staff is making its own assessments and planning a response. Medvedev insisted that Russia would prefer to resolve all issues peacefully, but that the West seems uninterested in such a resolution.

Russia’s security chief blasts West, dangles nuclear threats

A top Russian security official warned Thursday about the rising threat of a nuclear war and blasted a German minister for threatening Russian President Vladimir Putin with arrest, saying that such action would amount to a declaration of war and trigger a Russian strike on Germany.

Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council chaired by Putin, said in video remarks to reporters that Russia’s relations with the West have hit an all-time bottom.

Asked whether the threat of a nuclear conflict has eased, Medvedev responded: “No, it hasn’t decreased, it has grown. Every day when they provide Ukraine with foreign weapons brings the nuclear apocalypse closer.”

He has issued a barrage of such strongly-worded statements in the past, blasting the U.S. and its NATO allies for what he described as their efforts to break up and destroy Russia. It’s been a drastic metamorphosis for the gentle-looking politician, who once was hailed by the West as a liberal hope.

Based on Remarks today . . . War it will be

Deputy Chairman of the Russian Federation Council (Senate) Dmitry Medvedev made remarks today that seem to confirm war with the West is the choice that has, in fact, been made.

When analyzing public remarks of any leader, one must always take into account errors in translation, and more importantly, nuances in culture/language that may exist in one culture, but do not precisely translate to other cultures.   So interpreting remarks of foreign officials is a delicate task that must be undertaken with very great care.

Having said that, sometimes the meaning of a foreign officials remarks translate very precisely, and say what we actually think is meant.  Such was the case today.

Today, Dmitry Medvedev said the following:  “The consequences of the collision of the world’s most powerful armies will be terrible and there will be no victor at all.”

Pretty hard to not understand the plain meaning of that.   Let’s dissect:

“The consequences of THE collision . . . .”  Not “a collision” but rather “THE” collision.  His use of the word THE rather than “a” indicates to me that a collision IS, in fact, coming.

“. . . WILL be terrible . . .”  Not “would” or “could” but rather “WILL.”  His use of the word “WILL” rather than “would” or “could” reinforces my interpretation above that the decision to go to actual war has been made.

Lastly,  “. . . there WILL be no victor at all.”    Again, his use of the word “WILL” is now double reinforcement of the reality that the decision for an actual shooting war is already made, and worse, since “. . . there will be no victor”  that tells me it is also decided that the coming war WILL be nuclear.   After all, a nuclear war is the ONLY war that has no victor.

Medvedev is not in any way careless with his use of language.  He is clearly a highly educated man, who says what he means and means what he says.

He went on: “Russia is not fighting the Ukrainian regime, but rather the 3.6 million-member NATO army.”

That.     That right there . . .  is the hideous, ugly reality.   Medvedev knows what’s what, and he just said it publicly.   When a top elected official of a country, publicly declares that war is being waged against his land by an identified combatant, the only expected course of action is for his country to engage that combatant directly.   So this remark reinforce my interpretation of earlier remarks above.  

Medvedev’s choice of words today, terrifies me.  Not because I am afraid to die — I’m not.   But because his words seem to indicate (to me) that tens of millions of us are going to die, and our world will __never__ be the same.  The good will perish with the evil.  Cities and towns will be flattened.  Disease and death will run rampant.

This is a catastrophe that does not have to be.  Yet our U.S. government, and its NATO vassals, are pursuing this course to the exclusion of almost all else.  It seems like insanity to me.

In related news, Estonia’s Foreign Minister has decided to expel one Russian diplomat.  Moscow will respond to Estonia’s decision to expel Russian diplomat — Russian Foreign Ministry.

So what little is left of “Diplomacy” is also being intentionally wrecked by our NATO vassals.

From Maria Zakharova

London stated that there is nothing special about using depleted uranium shells, they always use them, everything is within the standard! On this channel you can watch the English dubbed version of this video:

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, at a regular briefing, spoke about the volume of supplies by the West (the United States, NATO and the European Union) of military assistance and weapons to Ukraine. In particular, Zakharova reported Russia’s point of view on the UK’s statement about its intention to supply depleted uranium shells to Ukraine.
