On July 6, 2022, Dmitry Medvedev, a former Russian president, gave a terrible warning to the West.
He thinks the West’s anti-Russian efforts might cause tensions with Russia to escalate to a nuclear level.
After all, according to data from the Federation of American Scholars, Moscow has the world’s greatest nuclear arsenal, with 5,977 nuclear warheads in its armory.
Russia Holding a Gun to Our Head
“It is ludicrous to penalize a nation with one of the highest nuclear potentials. It maybe presents a threat to humankind’s continued survival,” Medvedev said on Telegram.
Medvedev is now the Security Council representative for Russia.
In the early phases of Russia’s special military campaign, Medvedev warned that the world would be headed toward a nuclear “dystopia” if the US and its allies destabilized Moscow in the same way they did in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Biden administration so far fueled a regional conflict in Ukraine by sending massive amounts of military aid into that country in an effort to starve Russia dry.
Medvedev slammed the US for its dishonest posturing in international affairs in the same chat message, particularly, the US’ demands that Russia is tried for allegedly committing crimes in Ukraine.
The previous Russian leader made reference to US military operations that cost millions of lives in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Korea, as well as Vietnam.

“Who will conduct a “show trial” for us? Whom do the international institutions they fund truly criticize when they slaughter people and conduct crimes against humanity?”
This was asked according to a translated version of the Telegram post Medvedev made.
Medvedev presided over Russia as president from 2008 until 2012. Although Medvedev was usually seen as being more pro-western than his adversary, Vladimir Putin, Putin pursued the objective of constructing a state.
During the Russo-Georgian War of 2008, he contentiously supervised Russia’s retaliatory military operation against Georgia, which put Georgia’s chances of joining NATO on hold.
Russian War Crimes
Some of the most recent maneuvers the US deep state has used to try to implicate Moscow in a heavily political wartime crime show trial were observed by Dave DeCamp of Antiwar.com.
During a recent trip to Ukraine, US Attorney General Merrick Garland vowed to back global action to look into potential Russian war crimes.
The US is not a member of the court. It has hampered its efforts to investigate suspected war crimes perpetrated by the US and Israel. The International Court (ICC) has launched an inquiry in Ukraine.
In Belgorod, the Iskander rocket decided to return to its senders. Moreover, according to eyewitnesses, this happened not with one but with several missiles in a row.#Ukraine #Russia pic.twitter.com/mlYPtgs04A

In the end, Ukraine has no significant national interests at risk. A terrible struggle that Ukraine is sure to lose will only be prolonged by the US’s ongoing military assistance.
These escalations will also lead Russia to demand increasingly stricter capitulation conditions, which may culminate in the total collapse of the Ukrainian state.
Close off the military aid spigot and let European players, Russia, and Ukraine negotiate a deal if the US wants peace and wants to stop more bloodshed in Ukraine.
