“Tomorrow, at NATO’s Ramstein base, top military leaders will discuss new tactics and strategies, as well as supplying Ukraine with new heavy weapons and attack systems. And this will be right after the Davos Forum, where late revelers repeated like a mantra: to achieve peace, Russia must lose,” Medvedev said on his Telegram channel.
“And it never occurs to any of these wretches to draw the following elementary conclusion from this: the defeat of a nuclear power in a conventional war can lead to the outbreak of a nuclear war,” he stressed.
Medvedev maintains in his umpteenth attack against the West, that “nuclear powers do not lose major conflicts on which their destiny depends.”
But this should be obvious to anyone. Even for a Western politician who has preserved at least some trace of intelligence », he insists.
The former Russian president made the remarks on the eve of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group meeting at the US Ramstein airbase in Germany, where kyiv’s partners plan to announce major new military aid that will include more weapons and ammunition, as well as armored vehicles and, as the government of Volodimir Zelensky hopes, modern tanks.
