Top Putin Ally Warns Russia Will Hit Major Cities if They Lose to Ukraine


We all can agree an end to the war between Russia and Ukraine is long overdue. But just how it ends could mean nuclear war for the whole world.

That is the threat one ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin is warning of this week.

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev now serves as Putin’s deputy secretary of the Russian Security Council. As such, he remains close to Putin.

On Wednesday, Medvedev warned that if Russia ends up losing the war to Ukraine “and her allies,” Russia is prepared to launch a “global war with Western countries with the use of our entire strategic (nuclear) arsenal against Kyiv, Berlin, London, and Washington.”

Medvedev also mentioned that other “beautiful historic places that have long been included in the flight targets of our nuclear triad” will also be fired upon.

This warning was posted to the social media platform Telegram, according to the Kyiv Independent.

Now, you might be asking yourself why Russia or Medvedev would even consider such a threat. After all, nuclear war pretty much means the end of the planet, right?

Well, the answer to that is basically that Russia, or her leaders, would rather end the entire world than see Russia defeated and disappear from the map.

A little context for this comes from looking at the territories Russia would lose should they lose.

When Russia invaded Ukraine, it did so to take back control of Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, Luhansk, and Kherson, areas it controlled prior to 1991 when Ukraine became a wholly independent nation and the second largest in Europe.

Ukrainian official Anton Gerashchenko explained in a translated post to X on Sunday a loss of their territories by Russia would essentially result in a “direct and irreversible collapse of present-day Russia, which constitutionally includes the new territories.”

Basically, it’s a ‘if we can’t win, no one will’ concept.

However, it’s also one that Putin, nor his office have confirmed. And this wouldn’t be the first time Medvedev had made similar threats.

In any case, the sooner a cease-fire or agreement can be made for both sides, the better, particularly if there is any merit to this threat.
