Close Putin Associate Warns of ‘Likely’ Nuclear Strike as Russia-Ukraine Tensions Intensify

Viktor Medvedchuk, friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, recently expressed concerns over the escalating tension between Russia and Ukraine, suggesting that a nuclear strike is becoming increasingly likely. 

Russian officials have recently issued several nuclear threats towards the West and Ukraine.

In a speech last month, Putin emphasized the preparedness of Russia’s strategic nuclear forces and hinted at the real possibility of nuclear conflict should Western nations intervene militarily in Ukraine.

This warning was in response to comments made by French President Emmanuel Macron, who later clarified his stance, indicating that France isn’t looking to deploy troops in Ukraine, but is exploring ways to support the country.

Medvedchuk highlighted that if the West continues its attempts at maintaining global supremacy, then a nuclear strike is likely. 

He indicated that Ukraine’s resources alone would not suffice and speculated about the involvement of foreign forces, leading to potential nuclear engagement.

The politician also mentioned the potential involvement of countries outside Europe, such as those in the Arab world, China, and India, due to their substantial military personnel.

These remarks come amidst warnings from Western leaders, including U.S. President Joe Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, about the catastrophic consequences of a direct conflict between Russia and NATO forces. 

Despite these concerns, Putin maintains that Russia’s actions are a preemptive defense against Western aggression, dismissing any notion of a NATO-Russian confrontation as “nonsense.”

As the situation develops, the international community remains on edge, with NATO members, especially those bordering Russia, voicing their apprehensions about the looming threat of direct conflict.
