MOSCOW – One of the President’s closest allies Vladimir Putin warned the West that the increasing military support given to Ukraine by United States of America (US) and its allies risk sparking conflict between Russia and military alliance NATO .

Former president Dmitry Medvedev, now deputy chairman of Russia’s security council, said such conflicts with NATO always carried the risk of turning into nuclear war massively.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24 killed thousands, devastated its former Soviet neighbors and raised fears of the worst confrontation between Russia and the United States since the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.

“NATO countries pumping weapons into Ukraine, training troops to use Western equipment, sending mercenaries and training Alliance countries near our borders increase the possibility of direct and open conflict between NATO and Russia,” Medvedev said in a Telegram post.

“Such a conflict always carries the risk of turning into a full-fledged nuclear war,” Medvedev added.

“This would be a disastrous scenario for everyone,” he concluded ReutersThursday (12/5/2022).

Russia and the US are by far the largest nuclear powers in the world. Russia has about 6,257 nuclear warheads while the three NATO nuclear powers – the US, UK and France – have about 6,065 warheads combined, according to the Washington-based Arms Control Association.
