Russia’s invasion of Ukraine started more than a year ago on February 24, 2022. Since that time, the war has gotten worse and started to draw in more outside powers, including the United States, Europe, and China.
This has all the makings of a world war. Former Russian President and Putin insider Dmitry Medvedev said the world has never been closer to a world war.
Medvedev: Russia is Ready to Use Nukes
Medvedev warned that Russia has never been closer to using nuclear weapons. Russia also warned if South Korea supplies Ukraine with weaponry and equipment, they will arm North Korea.
Recent documents leaked inside the United States showed Ukraine plans a counterattack soon, South Korea is split about whether to support Ukraine, and Ukraine has plans to bomb Russia’s capital of Moscow with long-range missiles.
Medvedev says if Zelensky and the Ukrainian government strike inside Russia, then the entire nation of Ukraine will “burn.”
Medvedev warned that Russia might arm North Korea if South sends weapons to Ukraine.
This comes after South Korean President's statement about the possibility sending arms to Ukraine.
Basically to summarize: WW3 is de-facto here!

‘The World is Sick’
Medvedev currently heads up Russia’s Security Council, which is a powerful defense group. He said “the world is sick” and conflict in Ukraine is completely the fault of Europe and the United States.
Russia tried to avoid conflict, according to Medvedev, who warned Russia will fire back with nukes if they are hit hard even by non-nuclear weapons.
It’s clear the US and West pushed for regime change inside Ukraine during the Maidan protests and Victoria Nuland and others have been using Ukraine as a pawn.
This is all about the Western desire to keep Germany separate from cheap Russian energy and ensure that Germany and Russia don’t ally and displace the United States as a major power.
That’s why the Biden-Harris regime blew up the Nord Stream pipeline, clearly. At the same time, Russia and Putin are the ones who decided to invade and start burning down Ukraine. Playing the victim now looks pretty bizarre.
Comments about WW3, like from former Russian president (Dmitry Medvedev), should not be swept under the rug. They should be taken seriously, by all global stakeholders. The world is nearing a point of no return.

The Bottom Line
This war is escalating out of control. It has real potential to become a nuclear conflict. Deescalation needs to happen as soon as possible.This article appeared in StatesmanPost and has been published here with permission.
