Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday warned the US against trying to punish Russia for its war in Ukraine, saying that doing so would risk humanity since Moscow has the world’s largest nuclear arsenal.
“The idea of punishing a country that has one of the largest nuclear potentials is absurd. And potentially poses a threat to the existence of humanity,” Medvedev wrote on Telegram.
Medvedev, who currently serves as the deputy of Russia’s Security Council, had warned earlier in the war that if the US destabilizes Russia like it did Iraq and other countries, it could lead to a nuclear “dystopia.” As of 2020, Russia was estimated to have 6,375 nuclear warheads, and the US said it possessed 5,750 warheads.
Even though it’s widely believed that a direct conflict between the US and Russia could quickly turn nuclear, it doesn’t appear to be a factor in the Biden administration’s response to the war in Ukraine. Instead, the US is pouring billions of dollars in weapons into the country and continues to escalate its involvement in the war.
In his Telegram post, Medvedev also called out the US for hypocrisy for trying to put Russia on trial for war crimes, citing the millions killed by the US since World War II in countries like Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, and many others.
“So who’s going to give us a show trial? Those who kill people and commit war crimes with impunity, but do not meet real condemnation in the international structures financed by them?” Medvedev said, according to a Google translation of his Telegram post.
US Attorney General Merrick Garland recently visited Ukraine and pledged support for international efforts to investigate alleged Russian war crimes. The International Criminal Court (ICC) has opened an investigation in Ukraine, but the US is not a party to the court and has impeded its effort to investigate alleged war crimes committed by the US and Israel.

Is that Direct enough for everybody?…
Unfortunately, I don’t think it is. I’ve been patiently explaining this to my stubbornly ignorant fellow Americans for months. One of the typical responses is “We can’t let them blackmail us just because they have nukes!”
Just because. 🙁
Well,yes but Biden is old man and he wouldn’t have rats ars,and warmonger media keep pushing ” Dead, rather than Red ” so there is no sane people in America,
We all pray God that he will take him and we save the world.
Honestly, Russians have more sense than our neocon government and our media echo chamber.
Keeping public ignorant and ” useful Idiots ” and media warmongors is out biggest concern and I am sure Putin understand that.
It doesn’t sound like it.
The only war crimes tribunals will be held by Russia. Zelenskyy better find a way out of Ukraine before the war ends.
He will be whisked out to his 35 million mansion in Florida by his Zionist buddies. Or else in Israel with a different identity just as Jeffry Epstein is rumored to be living there.Don’t worry about him.
Once again, The Kremlin making unnecessary nuclear threats as if the rest of the world has none.
They expect the world to let Russia does whatever it wants because they have nukes.
What US has been doing all these years. Only power play.What Israel is doing in Palestine. The same thing.
Right Don, that’s why he said what he said. He thinks only Russia has nukes.
So you don’t get what “as if” means?
Sure I do.
Fist fights aboard the titanic will not keep it from sinking but since cognitive dissonance is the popular drink, bottoms up[pun intended].
In the event of a nuclear war, US and West would lose to Russia because they are a lot less prepared and do not have much survival facilities and infrastructures…!
Neither nation would survive.
That sort of threat is unacceptable.
Just a blunt way of saying “all options are on the table”.
Russia gives the free world no choice. “Give us what we want, or we will destroy you.”
The West must immediately step up its defensive AND offensive capabilities and also, most importantly, put in position a plan to destroy the leadership of Russia. Russia give us no choice. They insist on this.
