Medvedev’s nuclear threats. “This is not a bluff”

“We will do everything we can to prevent the appearance of nuclear weapons in neighboring countries that are hostile to us. For example, Nazi Ukraine, which is now directly controlled by NATO countries,” former Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev wrote on his Telegram channel .

At the same time, the Russian politician added that “there is no point in counting on common sense and the political will of the Kiev regime.” “But there is still a fragile hope for common sense and a sense of self-behavior by hostile countries that have them [władzom Kijowa] they indulge. If the threat to Russia exceeds the established limit, we will have to react. Without asking for permission, without much consultation. This is not a bluff, “Medvedev warned.

These are other threats of this type from Russia. On Wednesday Russian President Vladimir Putin warned in a speechthat Russia would use “all necessary measures” in the event of a state threat, which many commentators saw as a poorly veiled threat to use nuclear weapons.

The United States does not currently see any signs of preparation for the use of nuclear weapons by Russia, but it takes the threat seriously, said White House spokeswoman Karin Jean-Pierre. “We see no reason to revise our nuclear policy now,” added Jean-Pierre.
