Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council and the former Russian president who has been a vocal critical of NATO’s nearly unlimited support for Ukraine’s war effort, said the alliance will not step in if Moscow employs nuclear weapons in Ukraine despite the bluster.
He said the alliance would be too scared of the potential for a ‘nuclear apocalypse’ to intervene and enter the conflict, Reuters reported.
“I believe that NATO would not directly interfere in the conflict even in this scenario,” Medvedev said. “The demagogues across the ocean and in Europe are not going to die in a nuclear apocalypse.”
Medvedev took to Telegram earlier this month and said eventually “everything will catch fire.”
He said the West is intent on weakening Russia by proxy and won’t be able to sit it out.
“Everything will catch fire around them as well,” Ukrayinska Pravda translated. “Their people will be devastated. Their earth will literally burn, and concrete will melt. We too will suffer a lot. It will be very bad for everyone. After all, it is said: “By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulphur coming out of their mouths” (Rev. 9:18).”
