SHOCKING: Top Russian Official Warns “Horsemen Of The Apocalypse Are Already On Their Way”, CC BY 4.0 , via Wikimedia Commons

A top Russian official has warned that their military will strike Western targets outside Ukraine if U.S.-supplied rockets are used in attacks on Russian soil.

In a statement coming on the heels of President Joe Biden’s confirmation that the U.S. would be sending advanced medium-range rocket systems to Ukraine, Russian National Security Council chairman Dmitry Medvedev stated that, “God forbid, these weapons are used against Russian territory, then our armed forces will have no other choice but to strike decision-making centers,” adding, “It needs to be understood that the final decision-making centers in this case, unfortunately, are not located on the territory of Kyiv.”

Medvedev, former prime minister and former president of Russia, went on to ominously say, “The Horsemen of the Apocalypse are already on their way and all hope now is with Lord God Almighty.” As Russia continues to win the war in Ukraine, the tone being taken by public figures, especially in Russian politics and media, does not bode well for peace in the future.

The background for these statements is troubling. As the United States delivers $40 billion to Ukraine, a sum that will lead to the death of Russian soldiers, Russian television news anchor Olga Skabeyeva recently stated that “perhaps” the country is “in a real sense” already engaged in World War 3, calling for the “demilitarization” of NATO. 

Strikes on Donetsk in the Donbas region by American M777 howitzers were directly cited by Skabeyeva when she suggested that the operation in Ukraine has ended, and that a new war with the West may have already started.

Called “Putin’s Voice” by some, Vladimir Solovyov, a news anchor particularly favorable to Russian President Vladimir Putin, said just days ago that because British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has asserted “she’s the one fighting the war,” Russia should “maybe” invade Europe until they reach “Stonehenge.”

The increasingly inflammatory responses by Russian leaders and opinion-makers to the role of Western countries in killing Russian troops has been ignored by President Biden, including a declaration by Putin warning that Biden’s weapons shipments will be targeted as they enter Ukraine. 

On Thursday, Putin followed through on his warning when Russia deployed a hypersonic missile in a strike on a NATO supply line. The attack happened within the borders of Ukraine, but continued incidents like this will inevitably cause NATO casualties, likely including U.S. service members. Each day that the U.S. is involved in Ukraine, the chances increase that there will be direct military conflict between the United States and Russia.

Given the vast military superiority of the U.S. and NATO, Russia’s threats of resorting to nuclear war should not be ignored. Russia could not win a fight with a united West in a ground war — by themselves — but they have warned that they would use nuclear weapons if Russia was threatened —  their increasingly close ally, China, has made similar comments about nuclear strikes.

Russia has developed missiles capable of getting through the most advanced U.S. missile defense systems. It does not further American interests to go to war with Russia. 

As the policy to arm Ukraine in a hopeless war against a vastly superior military continues, the Biden administration’s aggressive and belligerent stance toward Russia has already hurt the U.S. and European nations. But the continued antagonism from U.S. and NATO leaders, particularly in the form of actions that will lead to Russian casualties, may lead the West down a path to a tragic outcome.

The world is sleep walking toward a cataclysmic event. The citizens of the West are standing by as their governments corner a country with a much more powerful military than Iraq or Afghanistan. It is certain that Americans will die if cooler heads don’t prevail at this important juncture. We are facing food shortages, continued economic hardship and possible nuclear war over our involvement in Ukraine.

$40 billion could have bettered the lives of millions of Americans. Instead, President Biden and his allies in Congress have invested that sum into a hopeless conflict that could lead to a historic loss of life.

The U.S. government needs to negotiate with Russia, halt its support for continued hostilities in Ukraine and insist that Volodymyr Zelenskyy make concessions in the interest of peace and security in the West. Americans do not want to go to war in Ukraine; despite this, the Biden administration seems intent on sinking more blood and treasure into a foreign country on the other side of the world.
