A Kremlin official has warned that the US Pentagon are threatening the Kremlin with what they describe as a “decapitating strike” which they say would be an “assassination attempt” on Vladimir Putin.
The Russian Foreign Minister has warned that if there is any attempted assassination on Putin from the US or the West this will risk a nuclear war.
Lavrov told TASS state news agency that “anonymous officials” in the Pentagon are openly plotting the attempted assassination of Putin in Russia.

He added, “Washington is ahead of the others as some ‘anonymous officials’ from the Pentagon actually voiced threats to deliver a decapitating strike’ on the Kremlin, which is in fact a threat of an attempted assassination of the Russian president.”
Lavrov warned, “If such ideas are really pondered by someone, then this someone should think better about possible consequences of such plans.”
Lavrov and the former Russian Presdient Dmitry Medvedev are claiming that the West are wanting conflict with Russia.
Lavrov warned, “It seems that they had shed all the vestiges of respectability.”
He continued, “Flamboyant [ex-PM] Liz Truss is one of the vivid examples as she said straight away in public during her pre-election campaign that she was ready to order a nuclear strike.”
The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had also “managed to persuade NATO states into delivering preventive nuclear strikes against Russia.
“This is above the limit.
“However, we heard much worse statements on behalf of the [Kyiv] regime’s officials.”
In his rant Lavrov then blasted the West of hyping “with irresponsible speculations that Russia is allegedly on the brink of using nuclear weapons against Ukraine.”
The Kremlin official added, “The political course of the West, which is aimed at the total restraint of Russia, is extremely dangerous.
“It bears downside risks of a direct armed clash of nuclear powers.”
Lavrov continued, “We are deeply concerned to state the fact of the propagandistic mayhem rhetoric in the United States and in the West in general regarding the nuclear weapons issue.”
He threatened that Ukraine and the West must accept Russia’s demands for the ‘demilitarisation and denazification’ of Ukrainian territory, declaring: ‘There is a little left to do… accept these proposals in an amicable way. Otherwise, the Russian Army will deal with this issue.’
