"Russia is left with less and less choice": Medvedev tried to scare NATO with threats, but "forgot" about the strike on the Black Sea Fleet headquarters
The deputy head of the Russian Security Council and former president of the aggressor country, Dmitry Medvedev, has issued new threats against NATO countries. He claimed that Russia was left with no choice but to engage in direct conflict with the Alliance, "which has turned into an openly fascist bloc like the Hitler Axis."
A supporter of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin wrote about this on Telegram. He noted that the result would be much greater losses for humanity than in 1945.
Medvedev identified three events as the reasons for a possible direct confrontation between Russia and NATO:
- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's "fraternization" with "Nazis" in his parliament, by which the former Russian president probably meant the Ukrainian delegation led by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
- Supplying Ukraine with Abrams tanks from NATO arsenals.
- Promises of longer-range missiles such as the Army Tactical Missile System to the Kyiv authorities.
While scattering threats and intimidation, Medvedev "forgot" about the losses suffered by the Russian army at the front, as well as the strike on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in the temporarily occupied Sevastopol.
British intelligence assessed that the damage to the fleet as a result of numerous attacks by Ukrainian forces was serious, albeit localized. It is likely that the occupiers' Black Sea Fleet may be less capable of expanded regional patrols and blockades of Ukrainian ports.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that 34 officers of the Russian Armed Forces were killed in a strike on their headquarters in Sevastopol. Among them, in particular, is the commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, this is not the first time Medvedev has made such threats. Earlier, he scared the United States with "a new terrorist attack in the style of 9/11/2001, but with an atomic or biological component" and even a nuclear strike, and complained about the alleged "rudeness and disgusting self-righteousness of Western countries."
