Relations between the West and Russia continue to be below freezing. According to Moscow, the war in Ukraine has long been fought not only with Kyiv, but with the entire North Atlantic Alliance (NATO). Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, responding to the strengthening of military assistance to the Ukrainian army, mentioned the Third World War.
Russian officials have long claimed that Moscow is not only at war with Ukraine, but with the entire West and NATO. The alliance is said to be seeking to wipe Russia off the world political map, the agency wrote Reuters.
Stefano Sannino, head of the European External Action Service (EEAS), warned on Saturday against the Kremlin’s attempts to present the conflict as a continuation of the Cold War-era confrontation between the United States and Europe with Russia.
“Putin switched from the concept of special military operations to the concept of war with NATO and the whole West,he noted for the agency AP. In recent weeks, the United States and European countries have agreed on further assistance to Ukraine, for example by supplying modern tanks. “I think as far as arms deliveries are concerned, this is just our reaction to the development of the situation and the fact that Russia has started to move the war to another phase,” added Sannino.
European powers’ plans to arm Ukrainian troops have angered Russia’s deputy chairman of the Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev. He was surprised on his Telegram account that the supply of weapons, according to the West, would prevent a world war.
“There are many idiots in the European power structures. Several defense ministers from several Italians described the supply of armored vehicles and other weapons to Ukraine as a deterrence of a third world war,” wrote Medvedev.
“The talented ministerial neighbors of the evil mist empire with the imperial complex went even further. They said that all the weapons that NATO has should be given to Kiev immediately. Fighter jets, hundreds of tanks and long-range missile systems. In their opinion, this is the only way to prevent another world war. But if a third world war starts, sadly it won’t be done with tanks or fighter planes,” added the former Russian president.
Zelensky doubts Putin is still alive. He said he had no one to face:
“Certified bacon geek. Evil social media fanatic. Music practitioner. Communicator.”
