Russian Official Issues Disturbing Threat of Nuclear Retaliation in Response to Ukraine’s Success


A strong supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a warning about the potential use of nuclear weapons against the US if it does not succeed in its invasion of Ukraine.

On Sunday, Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia, stated in a Telegram post that Moscow would consider using nuclear weapons if “Ukraine with its allies” succeeded in pushing Russia out of the war-torn country.

Imagine a scenario where Russia is defeated and Ukraine, along with its allies, emerges victorious. What would such a victory mean for our adversaries, the neo-Nazis and their Western supporters?

Medvedev’s statement was shared by Anton Gerashchenko, a former adviser to the Ukrainian Department of Internal Affairs, on X, previously known as Twitter.

He discusses the “collapse of Russia,” detailing a “return to the borders of 1991” when the USSR fell after the Cold War.

According to Medvedev, a Western victory would result in a total collapse of Russia, leading to “tens of millions of victims.” He referred to it as “the death of our future.” Everything in the world has crumbled.

The post goes on to mention that the collapse of Russia will have far more severe consequences than those of a typical, even the lengthiest war. Trying to revert Russia to the borders of 1991 will only result in one outcome. Engaging in a global conflict with Western nations, utilizing all the strategic resources of our state.

He proceeds to issue nuclear threats against major cities in the United States and Europe. Opposing Kyiv, Berlin, London, and Washington. Compared to other stunning historical sites that have been designated as potential targets for our nuclear triad, he wrote, as reported by Gerashchenko.

Ending his statement, Medvedev pondered: “Will we have the courage to act when the fate of a thousand-year-old nation, our beloved homeland, hangs in the balance, and the efforts of the Russian people throughout history are at risk of being wasted? It’s clear what the answer is.

It has been nearly two years since Russia initiated its invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. Ever since that time, Putin and other high-ranking Russian officials have made threats to deploy nuclear weapons while carrying out their operations in Ukraine and against NATO member nations.

Russia possesses the largest nuclear arsenal globally. As per the data from the Federation of American Scientists, Russia has 5,889 nuclear warheads, while the US has 5,244. 89 percent of the world’s total inventory of nuclear weapons is held by the US and Russia.
