MOSCOW – Deputy Head of the National Security Council Russia Dmitry Medvedev touched on potential nuclear war between his country and the United States (US) as a result of the war in Ukraine .
He said any serious conflict involving the world’s leading nuclear powers would clearly have no winners.
“As a result, comparing the military power of Russia and America is pointless,” he said, as quoted by Russia Today, Friday (24/3/2023).
“The consequences of a nuclear war will be dire and make it impossible to say which army is first and which is second,” continued the former Russian president.
According to him, the greatness of military forces is measured by the results of its campaign.
“The American army, in my opinion, will be considered first [di dunia] at least during the period when they were actually fighting on the ground,” he said.
That, he continued, was the case during the Vietnam War. However, he added that the conflict itself was unjust and involved killing Vietnamese people unrelated to the conflict, for which the US has never been held accountable.
Medevedev claims Russia’s military action in Ukraine is different. “Because we are fighting for our people in our land,” he said.
“Moscow’s real opponent is not the semi-Nazi or Nazi regime in Kiev, but NATO, with 3.6 million soldiers and an economy driven by a population of 800 million, that provides Kiev with vehicles, weapons and money.”
