Medvedev has accused the US and its allies of trying to provoke Russia’s break-up, in a chilling nuclear warning he said that such attempts could lead to doomsday.

The Deputy Chairman of Russia’s Security Council, alleged that some in the West would like to “take advantage of the military conflict in Ukraine to push our country to a new twist of disintegration, do everything to paralyse Russia’s state institutions and deprive the country of efficient controls, as happened in 1991,” referring to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Medvedev said in a rant, “They are the dirty dreams of Anglo-Saxon perverts, who fall asleep with a secret thought about the disintegration of our state, thinking about how to tear us apart.”
He then emphasised that “such attempts are very dangerous and should not be underestimated.
“Those dreamers ignore a simple axiom: the forced disintegration of a nuclear power is always a game of chess with death, in which you know when checkmate arrives: the day of judgment for humanity.”
He added that Russia’s vast nuclear arsenal is “the best guarantee for the preservation of Great Russia.”
