Putin Ally Warns Of Nuclear War If Russia Is Defeated In Ukraine

Putin Ally Warns Of Nuclear War If Russia Is Defeated In Ukraine

Russia’s former president Dmitry Medvedev, who is a close ally of President Vladimir Putin, has warned NATO that Moscow’s defeat in Ukraine could trigger a nuclear war.

In a post on the Telegram messaging app on Thursday, Medvedev, who serves as deputy chairman of Putin’s powerful security council, said:

The defeat of a nuclear power in a conventional war may trigger a nuclear war.

Nuclear powers have never lost major conflicts on which their fate depends.

Medvedev (57), served as Russia’s president from 2008 to 2012 and once presented himself as a reformer who was ready to work with the United States to liberalise Russia.

The Kremlin was quick to endorse Medvedev’s remarks, saying they were in full accordance with Moscow’s principles.

Russia’s doctrine allows for a nuclear attack after “aggression against the Russian Federation with conventional weapons when the very existence of the state is threatened”.

Patriarch Kirill, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, was quoted by the state news agency RIA as saying:

We pray to the Lord that he brings the madmen to reason and help them understand that any desire to destroy Russia will mean the end of the world.

Today is an alarming time. But we believe that the Lord will not leave Russian land.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine on 24 February 2022, Medvedev has repeatedly raised the threat of nuclear chaos and used insults to describe the West.

Russia and the United States hold about 90 percent of the world’s nuclear warheads.

According to the Federation of American Scientists, Russia has 5,977 nuclear warheads while the United States has 5,428, China 350, France 290 and the United Kingdom 225. | Al Jazeera

Actually Putin is fighting a war against Europe and US using Ukraine as the battleground! The US is spending Billions buying Ukraine weapons of mass destruction

It's clear he's fighting for the revival of the Soviet Union, but the countries that broke away from Russia would never accept it. China is watching with glee on ambush to take back the Eastern Russia which was taken from the Chinese. A federal state is not sovereign Russia would soon break into various sovereign states soon.

There are still Chinese speaking people in the region even today and the land was annexed by Russia from China in the 1800s.

Very possible Russia is a federal state, it is not stable to stand against the tide of discontent amongst its states, and right now those states appear to have been infiltrated by the West

Very reckless remarks from Medmedev. Nuclear bomb is different from the atomic bomb that was used on 1945. lts unwinable!

why manufacture these nuclear weapons


1 week ago

For control! Ask the US why they keep preaching peace yet they spend trillions on their army every year. One US general said "we make these complicated weapons so that no one will mess with us, they know we are the best in the world and if anyone messes with us we'll destroy them. Lesson learned"

@anonymous, you say you are not pro-Russia but your comment is biased towards Russia.

1. Whi started the war ?
Answer:- Russia

2. News sources:- Where are you getting YOUR news? Why isn't that news that isn't pro-west available to everybody? Al Jazeera- is it western?

3. Who is killing people in Ukraine?
answer:- Russia

4. What proposals did Russia make for negotiations? When?

5. Is it permissible for Russia to dictate Ukrainian Foreign Policy?

6. You say the West is losing? How? Where? Examples of western losses?

7. You say Russia is not losing. So why is Medved threatening the world about Russia losing in Ukraine? If Russia was indeed winning, why talk of losing and using nuclear weapons?
