MOSCOW (Realist English). Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said that the referendums in the liberated territories will take place, and the republics and other territories will be embraced by Russia.
“The protection of all the joined territories will be significantly strengthened by the Russian Armed Forces. Russia has announced that not only mobilization capabilities can be used for such protection, but also any Russian weapons, including strategic nuclear ones as well as weapons based on new principles.
Therefore, various retired idiots with general’s stripes shouldn’t be trying to scare us with their talk about a NATO strike on the Crimea. Hypersound is guaranteed to be able to reach targets in Europe and the USA much faster.
But the Western establishment, in general, all citizens of NATO countries need to understand that Russia has chosen her path. There is no turning back,” he wrote in the telegram channel.
On September 21, retired US Lieutenant General Ben Hodges claims that his country will retaliate with ‘a devastating strike’ against Russia’s Black Sea Fleet or bases in Crimea if Russian President Vladimir Putin uses nuclear weapons in the Ukraine.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, the retired serviceman called as “very unlikely” a scenario in which the Russian president would order a nuclear attack. But he said the use of any strategic weapons of mass destruction would be met with a swift and severe reaction from President Joe Biden.
