Medvedev threatened to start a nuclear war if Russia loses in Ukraine

Russia will start a nuclear war if it is defeated during the war in Ukraine, said Dmitry Medvedev, deputy head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation.

So the official reacted to statements by Western leaders that Russia must lose the war against Ukraine in order to ensure long-term peace. “And it never occurs to any of the poor to draw the following elementary conclusion from this: the loss of a nuclear power in a conventional war can provoke the outbreak of a nuclear war. The nuclear powers have not lost major conflicts on which their fate depends,” Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel.

He also noted that Ukraine’s allies will meet on January 20 at the German Ramstein base, where they will discuss new tactics and strategies against Russia, as well as announce the supply of new heavy weapons and strike systems. In particular, Kyiv may receive the first tanks from Great Britain, Poland and Germany, as well as long-range artillery from the United States for attacks on the Crimea.

“In order for the military conflict to end, Russia must lose,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said the day before, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos. According to him, Germany and its partners are supplying weapons to Kyiv in order to achieve this goal. Also, the defeat of Russia as a necessary condition for the end of the conflict was stated by UN Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. He called the current situation at the front in Ukraine “a key moment.”

In turn, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the “inevitable” victory of Russia in the war against Ukraine. “In terms of the end result and the victory that is inevitable, there are a few things that have not gone away that are at the core of our victory. This is the unity and cohesion of the Russian and, in general, the multinational Russian people,” Putin said during a visit to the Obukhov plant in St. Petersburg. He also urged industry to provide a basis for “victory” at the front.

In December, Putin said that the Russian authorities “are not crazy” and “are aware of what nuclear weapons are.” At the same time, he stressed that Russia not only has nuclear weapons, but are “in a more advanced and more modern form than any other nuclear country.”
