The former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has warned there will be “direct conflict with NATO” after the US are to send more deadly weapons to Ukraine.
Medvedev, the deputy chairman of the Security Council of Russia cited the latest military aid package from the US and NATO.
Ukraine have received the Abrams tanks from the US and they are also set to take delivery of the MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) which is a ballistic missile which will obliterate Vladimir Putin’s command posts 190 miles away.

Medvedev said in response said, “It seems that Russia is being left with less and less choice other than a direct conflict with NATO on the ground.”
He then compared NATO to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime, “albeit larger.”
Medvedev said, “We are ready, although the result will be achieved at [a] much greater cost to humanity than in 1945,” which was when the Second World War ended after Japan was bombed with two nuclear weapons.
The ATACMS will be able to strike any target inside Crimea which is panicking officials in Moscow.
Following the precision cruise missile strike on the Black Sea Fleet Navy headquarters in Sevastopol, Crimea Russian officials are very concerned.
Mykola Volkivskyi, a former Ukrainian parliamentary advisor has said that senior officials are rattled after the missile strike on the HQ and has sent shockwaves throughout the Russian leadership.
He told Express US, “[Ukraine] cannot disclose all the details of the special operation called ‘Crab Trap’ that took place in Sevastopol, but it is clear that at the time of the attack, the Russians were holding a meeting of the Russian Navy’s senior staff at this headquarters.”
Volkivskyi added, “Panic is now spreading among the occupation authorities in Sevastopol. There is an emergency search for shelters and basements.”
Volkivskyi said, “During a personal conversation with the former commander of NATO’s forces in Europe, I received information that the de-occupation of Crimea is only a matter of time. Ukraine, with the support of its allies, will confidently move in this direction.”
