MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Flooding Ukraine with weapons increases the odds of a conflict between Russia and NATO, which can turn into a nuclear war, Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council Dmitry Medvedev wrote on Telegram on Thursday.
“Efforts by NATO countries to flood Ukraine with weapons, train its troops to use Western equipment, deploy mercenaries and hold drills near our borders increase the odds of a direct and open conflict between Russia and NATO instead of its current proxy war,” Medvedev pointed out. “There is always a risk that such a conflict will turn into a full-on nuclear war. This will be a disastrous scenario for everyone,” he warned.
The former president emphasized that foreign analysts kept chattering non-stop about NATO’s war against Russia, “with Western ‘talking heads’ becoming increasingly cynical.” He highlighted attempts to argue that Moscow was allegedly trying to scare the world with the threat of a nuclear conflict. “Even [former US President Donald] Trump has recently put his two cents in on the matter. And of course, the Europeans have also started chirping with high-pitched voices,” Medvedev wrote.
When speaking about the mutually fatal consequences of a nuclear war, the Russian Security Council deputy chief urged the West to “stop lying to itself and others.” “There is a need to just think about the possible impact of one’s actions and try not to choke on one’s own saliva during Russophobic fits,” Medvedev stressed.
