The vice president of the Russian Security Council, former President

Dmitry Medvedev

"Mañana, en la base Ramstein de la OTAN, los grandes líderes militares discutirán nuevas tácticas y estrategias, así como el suministro a Ucrania de nuevos armamentos pesados y sistemas de ataque. Y esto será justo después del Foro de Davos, donde juerguistas retrasados repitieron como un mantra: para lograr la paz, Rusia debe perder", señaló Medvédev en su canal de Telegram.

"Y a ninguno de esos miserables se le ocurre sacar de esto la siguiente conclusión elemental: la derrota de una potencia nuclear en una guerra convencional puede provocar el estallido de una guerra nuclear", recalcó.

Medvédev sostiene en su enésima arremetida contra Occidente, que "las potencias nucleares no pierden grandes conflictos de los que depende su destino". "Pero esto debería ser obvio para cualquiera. Incluso para un político occidental que haya conservado al menos algún rastro de inteligencia", insiste.
