Russia Threatens US with Full Nuclear Arsenal if Ukraine War is Lost

( – A top official of the Russian government has warned that the U.S. and the West will suffer “serious consequences” should Russia lose the Ukrainian territories it already occupies.

Dmitry Medvedev, who is currently the deputy chair of the Russian Security Council, said that the capitals of Western countries – “Berlin, London, Washington [D.C.]” – along with the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv would feel the might of the “entire strategic arsenal” of Russia should Ukraine be able to retake the areas of Crimea, Kherson, Donetsk, Luhansk, and Zaporizhia. Russia currently occupies these areas, and has amended its constitution to include these in its official list of territories – despite the fact that the United Nations has recognized these territories as part of Ukraine.

Medvedev, who is a close ally of Russian strongman President Vladimir Putin, said any attempt to reset Russia’s borders will inevitably lead to “a global war with Western countries.” The once-Russian president and prime minister – in service to Putin – also called on Ukraine’s allies in the West to stand down, lest losing Ukraine push Russia into a state of civil war, which he said would cause “tens of millions of victims” as well as the “collapse of everything in the world.”

This is not the first time Russia has threatened Western countries over their support of Ukraine amid Russia’s continued efforts to invade it. Moscow was livid over the proposal by President Joe Biden to seize Russian monies believed to be held in European financial institutions, saying that “Russia will never leave those who do it [seize its funds] alone.” Russia is believed to have more than $300 billion stored outside its borders, with Biden proposing to other G7 country leaders that the funds could be confiscated and funneled to help Ukraine secure more resources to help it fight off the Russian invaders.

Medvedev also threatened nuclear strikes over a reported plan by the Ukrainian military to strike at missile sites within the Russian border.
