Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev has stated that a nuclear Apocalypse is not only possible, but also quite probable.
The former state president published these remarks on his telegram channel on Monday.
Medvedev argued that there are at least two reasons for such a scenario to occur, citing the ongoing confrontation between Russia and the West as the first cause.
“The world is in a confrontation much worse than during the Caribbean crisis, because our opponents have decided to really defeat the largest nuclear power – Russia. They are, no doubt, down-and-out jerks, but that’s just the way it is,” he said.
The second reason, he added, “is quite prosaic – nuclear weapons have already been used by whom and where, which means that there is no taboo!”
