Former Russian ruler Dmitry Medvedev says the United States and the West are treating the slave class like brainless idiots.” While that’s nothing new, as all rulers treat their subjects the same, Medvedev added that the West should come clean and tell people “the bitter truth” of what a war with Russia entails.
Medvedev warned that a possible Moscow-NATO war would be drastically different from the Ukraine conflict and would not rely on the use of artillery, tanks, and drones. He noted that the alliance has a combined population of nearly one billion people and defense spending reaching $1.5 trillion, making it far superior to Russia, according to a report by RT.
Should the West continue to escalate a war with Moscow, Russia would essentially be left with no choice but to deploy its nuclear assets, Medvedev has said. He reiterated, however, that his country is not seeking a conflict with the US-led military bloc, or NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).
Russia has also repeatedly said it has no plans of entering into a conflict with NATO and the European Union. Medvedev insisted that despite the West’s continuing “a dangerous drivel” on the issue of war, Russia will continue to refrain. He suggested that this narrative is designed to divert the attention of Western voters away from massive spending on aid for Ukraine, which is a war effort he said many have already grown tired of.

Medvedev argued that this fatigue stems from Western leaders’ desire to help “a dying country that is foreign to taxpayers,” while neglecting social problems at home. “Therefore, every day the leaders of these countries broadcast: We need to prepare for war with Russia and continue to help Ukraine,” he said.
Writing on Telegram on Wednesday, Medvedev, who now serves as deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, pushed back against statements by numerous Western leaders urging their countries to prepare for a potential conflict with Moscow.
“Since our military capabilities are incomparable, we will simply have no choice. The response will be asymmetrical. To protect the territorial integrity of our country, ballistic and cruise missiles with special warheads will be used… This will be the proverbial Apocalypse. The end of everything,” Medvedev said.
