According to CNN, the former Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, has warned that Russia will “disappear” if it loses the ongoing conflict with Ukraine. In a recent Telegram post, Medvedev stated that if Russia stops its military operations without achieving victory, it will be torn apart. His comments come in response to US President Joe Biden’s speech in Poland, where he called for an end to the invasion of Ukraine.
Medvedev accused Biden of spreading “a refined lie” and appealed to the people of Russia not to trust the leader of a “hostile state” who exudes hatred for their motherland. He also accused the US of unleashing the most wars in the 20th and 21st centuries and criticized Biden’s aim to ensure that Russia suffers a “strategic defeat.”
Medvedev’s comments came after Putin’s state of the nation address on Tuesday, where he announced that Russia is suspending its participation in the New START nuclear arms reduction treaty. Medvedev called this decision “overdue and inevitable,” and warned that if the US wants to defeat Russia, then the country has the right to defend itself with any weapon, including nuclear.
The ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine has been going on for several years, and tensions have escalated in recent weeks. The conflict has caused significant human suffering and has raised concerns about the stability of the region. Medvedev’s warning highlights the seriousness of the situation and the potential consequences of a prolonged conflict.
The international community has called for an end to the conflict and has urged both sides to engage in peaceful negotiations. The conflict can only be resolved through dialogue and cooperation, and both sides must be willing to compromise to find a peaceful solution. The stakes are high, and the consequences of failure could be catastrophic.
