Dmitry Medvedev: Kyiv and the West push the world to global war

Deputy Chairman of Russia's Security Council Dmitry Medvedev believes that Kyiv and Western countries are pushing the world to a global war.

"If Russia does not win, then, apparently, Ukraine does. The Kyiv regime announced Ukraine's goal in the war — to retrieve all the territories that previously belonged to Ukraine. In other words — to separate them from Russia. This is a threat to the existence of our state, the collapse of today's Russia.

"That means a direct reason for the application of Paragraph 19 of the Fundamentals of the State Policy of the Russian Federation in the field of nuclear deterrence.

"Who plans a nuclear conflict then, let me ask? Is this not a direct provocation of a world war with the use of nuclear weapons?”

According to Medvedev, it is Russia's full victory that may save the world from such a conflict.

Paragraph 19 of the Fundamentals of the State Policy of the Russian Federation in the field of nuclear deterrence reads as follows:

The conditions specifying the possibility of nuclear weapons use by the Russian Federation are as follows:

  • arrival of reliable data on a launch of ballistic missiles attacking the territory of the Russian Federation and/or its allies;
  • use of nuclear weapons or other types of weapons of mass destruction by an adversary against the Russian Federation and/or its allies;
  • attack by adversary against critical governmental or military sites of the Russian Federation, disruption of which would undermine nuclear forces response actions;
  • aggression against the Russian Federation with the use of conventional weapons when the very existence of the state is in jeopardy.
