Medvedev with new threats to NATO: We don't have many options left, we are ready for a direct confrontation
The Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev commented on the current events related to the war in Ukraine on his Telegram. As key events he presented the arrival of Abrams tanks in Kiev, the upcoming delivery of long-range missiles and the tribute to former Nazi Jaroslav Hunka in the Canadian Parliament.
"It seems that Russia is left with fewer and fewer options other than a direct confrontation with NATO on the ground." NATO has turned into an openly fascist bloc like Hitler's axis, albeit on a larger scale. "We are ready, although the result will be achieved at a much greater cost to humanity than in 1945," he announced.
Medvedev recently accused the United States and the European Union of bringing the world closer to a major war by "inciting terror" in Russia's border areas. On that occasion, he reminded that there can be no winner in the new global military conflict, reminds "Moscow Times".
US National Security Assistant Jake Sullivan explained in May this year that the US, while helping Kiev with weapons, is monitoring Moscow's response to prevent escalation. "President Biden's basic position is that we intend to do everything possible to support Ukraine in defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity," he said at the time.
"We intend to act in such a way as to avoid a third world war," he added.
US President Joe Biden admitted in the first days of Russia's invasion of Ukraine that Russian President Vladimir Putin's decision to go to war presented him with a choice.
"There were two options: start a third world war, that is, a physical war with Russia, or make sure that the country that is acting against international law pays the price for it," he explained.
