Following a televised speech by Vladimir Putin, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev threatened to use “all weapons, including strategic nuclear weapons” to ensure the security of the annexed territory.
The former Russian president – who held office from 2008 to 2012 – announced this through his Telegram account. It would not be the first time that, as the current deputy chairman of the Russian Security Council, Vladimir Putin, his ally, has used such weapons if he deems it necessary.
In Russian military doctrine, the use of nuclear weapons is permitted if Russia itself is seriously threatened. Mr. For Medvedev, this applies to the regions that, according to him, will soon become part of Russia. “There is no going back,” he said.
