Terrible announcement from Moscow: Putin’s close confidante and former superintendent Dmitry Medvedev (56) is openly threatening to carry out a nuclear attack on the West!
Ironically, before the NATO summit with US President Joe Biden begins on Thursday, Medvedev said that if the West economically destroyed Russia (e.g. with sanctions), it would mean a nuclear war.
Medvedev has raised fears in the West that things will get worse after Putin:
“The post-Putin world will have an unstable leadership in Moscow, with maximum nuclear weapons targeting the United States and Europe.”
The warning is obvious. The Kremlin is trying to spread more fear to intimidate NATO. No chance to catch up at NATO summit on Thursday …
Biden in Brussels
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden, 79, landed in Brussels on Wednesday evening!
He plans to hold three summits this Thursday because of Putin’s war against Ukraine.
Because: The leaders and heads of government of NATO, the European Union and the leading democratic economic powers (G7) meet in the Belgian capital. And Biden is attending all three summits.
The Allies want to discuss additional support for Ukraine and new measures against Russia.
Biden will travel to Poland on Friday, where he is scheduled to meet with President Andrzej Duda on Saturday. He also wants to visit US forces there. This is Biden’s third trip to Europe since taking office in January 2021.
Before leaving for Europe, Biden described the use of chemical weapons as a “real threat.” According to Scholes, he personally warned Putin against using chemical or biological weapons.
NATO General Jens Stoltenberg expressed the hope that the NATO Special Summit would acknowledge the additional support for Ukraine, including equipment for defense against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats, and cyber security assistance.
Summit Diplomacy on Thursday
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky is set to join the NATO summit via video. If NATO did not want to block the skies over Ukraine for Russian planes, his adviser Mikhail Potoliyak called for modern anti-aircraft weapons.
The strengthening of the eastern part of NATO announced by Stoltenberg is already a clear sign of Russia’s resistance. So far, NATO has permanently suspended international units in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and Poland. The expansion of the presence means that in the future NATO troops will be from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea.
