Former Russian President Warns About the Dangers of Nuclear Conflict in Ukraine
Dmitry Medvedev, the former president of Russia, issued a dire warning for the West on July 6, 2022.
He believes that the Collective West’s anti-Russia campaign could lead to a nuclear escalation with Russia. After all, Russia possesses the largest nuclear arsenal on the planet, with 5,977 nuclear warheads in its inventory per figures from the Federation of American Scientists.
“The idea of punishing a country that has one of the largest nuclear potentials is absurd. And potentially poses a threat to the existence of humanity,” Medvedev stated on Telegram.
In the present, Medvedev serves as the deputy of Russia’s Security Council. During the early stages of Russia’s special military operation, Medvedev warned that if the US and its allies destabilized Russia in the same way that it did in Iraq and Afghanistan, it could put the world on the path to a nuclear “dystopia.”
So far, the Biden regime has stoked a proxy war in Ukraine by pouring tons of military aid into Ukraine in an effort to bleed out Russia.
In the same Telegram post, Medvedev criticized the US for its hypocritical foreign policy grandstanding. Specifically, the US’s calls for Russia to be put on trial for committing alleged war crimes in Ukraine. The former Russian president alluded to the US’s military ventures in Afghanistan, Iraq, Korea, Vietnam, and others that resulted in the deaths of millions.
“So who’s going to give us a show trial? Those who kill people and commit war crimes with impunity, but do not meet real condemnation in the international structures financed by them?” Medvedev inquired, per a Google translation of the post he published on Telegram.
Medvedev was the president of Russia from 2008 to 2012. While he was generally viewed as more pro-Western than his counterpart in Vladimir Putin, Medvedev continued Putin’s state-building project. He controversially presided over Russia’s punitive military action against Georgia during the Russo-Georgian War of 2008, which put the prospect of NATO membership for Georgia on ice.
Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com noted some of the latest tricks the US Deep State has pulled to try to get Russia ensnared in a heavily politicized war crime show trial:
US Attorney General Merrick Garland recently visited Ukraine and pledged support for international efforts to investigate alleged Russian war crimes. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has opened an investigation in Ukraine, but the US is not a party to the court and has impeded its effort to investigate alleged war crimes committed by the US and Israel.
At the end of the day, no serious national interest is at stake in Ukraine. The US’s constant pouring of military aid into Ukraine will only prolong a bloody conflict that Ukraine is poised to lose. In addition, such escalations will result in Russia demanding even tougher surrender terms that could result in the complete destruction of the Ukrainian state.
If the US is interested in peace and preventing further bloodshed in Ukraine, it needs to close off the military aid spigot and allow European actors, Russia, and Ukraine to come to a negotiated settlement.
