Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev Believes NATO is Not Serious About Nuclear Threats
Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev declared on May 23, 2023 that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is not taking the threat of nuclear war seriously enough, thereby making a big mistake in world affairs. “NATO is not serious about this scenario. Otherwise, NATO would not have supplied such dangerous weapons to the Ukrainian regime. Apparently, they think that a nuclear conflict, or a nuclear apocalypse, is never ever possible,” he said during an interview with RT. In Medvedev’s opinion, NATO is “wrong and at some point events may take a completely unpredictable turn.”
“The responsibility will be placed squarely on the North Atlantic Alliance,” he stated.
As Medvedev noted, it’s anyone’s guess if the point of no return has already been passed.
“No one knows this. This is the main danger. Because as soon as they provide something, they say: let’s supply this, too. Long range missiles or planes. Everything will be all right. But nothing will be fine. We will be able to cope with it. But only more and more serious types of weapons will be used. That’s what the current trend is,” he said in a concluding remark.
Great power politics is no joke. Especially when dealing with nuclear powers who are willing to assert themselves on the world stage and defend their spheres of influence from Western encroachments. Truth be told, if the current leadership class can’t grasp this new reality, we’re in for a century of geopolitical turmoil.
