Medvedev on nuclear weapons: A very clear vision! Would the Russians be able to do that? – New time


Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday that Moscow could use all weapons in its arsenal, including nuclear ones, to defend Ukrainian territories incorporated into Russia. This was reported by Reuters and The Guardian newspaper. Kyiv and numerous foreign leaders call the referendums organized by Russian-appointed and separatist authorities in the occupied regions of Ukraine fraudulent and illegal. However, according to Medvedev, they will take place. “There is no going back,” declared a close associate of President Vladimir Putin. “The Donbas Republics (Donetsk and Luhansk) and other territories will be accepted into Russia,” Medvedev said, claiming that the protection of these territories would be significantly strengthened. “Russia has announced that not only mobilization capacities, but also any Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons, could be used for such protection.” Medvedev is currently the vice-chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. In recent months, he has regularly issued aggressive statements against the West and Ukraine, underscoring his transformation from the apparent liberal reformer he appeared to be as president in 2008-12 to a sharp geopolitical hawk.
