Medvedev: Russia is conducting a special operation in Ukraine to prevent World War III, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev, in an interview with the French TV channel LCI, called the purpose of the special operation in Ukraine.
The politician said that Russia is conducting a special military operation to prevent the Third World War.
According to him, if Ukraine received support and joined NATO, and then “one of the crazy rulers of Ukraine would launch a military operation against Russian territory, for example, against Crimea, it would mean the beginning of the third World War.”
Medvedev called the special operation in Ukraine protective.
According to him, Moscow’s response will be consistent with the size of the threats that are being put forward against the Russian side.
Now the Russian Federation is conducting this operation precisely as a defensive operation Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, also a politician, said that civilian casualties are a consequence of Kiev’s ugly criminal policy.
After all, they [the Ukrainian authorities] are hiding behind their citizens as a shield, they have these very MLRS HIMARS right in the location of schools and kindergartens. That is, they just cause the death of people in cases when they place weapons on their territory, Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, added that Russia would not have launched a special operation if the Ukrainian authorities had not “persecuted their own population in Donetsk and Lugansk” for eight years, and also if NATO had not provoked “North Atlantic aspirations” of Kiev.
If the Ukrainian leadership had plucked up the courage and recognized the realities (…), if there had not been a statement from Ukraine that it was necessary to restore the nuclear potential, probably this military campaign would not have begun. If all the negotiations had continued as we talked about it, Dmitry Medvedev, the deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, Medvedev also said that Ukraine’s refusal to join NATO is no longer a guarantee of a peaceful settlement of the conflict and the termination of the special operation.
He noted, in addition, it is necessary to develop guarantees of Russia’s security.
Now, as soon as the guarantees are worked out, put into an agreement signed by all parties, this will be a sufficient condition to stop the operation, of course, when its goal is reached, Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, Prospects for the annexation of the republics of Donbass to Russia, Medvedev assessed the prospects for the annexation of the republics of Donbass to Russia.
