Russia produces “the most powerful means of destruction”… and London puts in guard from the talks of pace

Former Russian president and Security Council deputy chairman Dmitry Medvedev confirmed on Sunday that his country is stepping up production of the “most powerful means of destruction,” suggesting they be used against the West.

Medvedev said: “Our enemy is not present in the trenches only in the Kiev Governorate in Malorussia (which is an administrative territorial entity in the former Russian Empire). It is also present in Europe, North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and others.”

“For this we are stepping up the production of the most powerful means of destruction, including those based on new principles,” he added, in a post which he posted this morning on his Telegram account.

The Russian official did not elaborate on these new principles, but they appear to refer to new generations of hypersonic weapons that Moscow has been proud to actively develop in recent years.

The specter of nuclear war has returned after the war started in Ukraine in February, underlining the erosion of the global security architecture established during the Cold War.

Russia’s military setbacks in recent months have raised concerns that Moscow is considering using its nuclear arsenal to change the situation on the ground.

However, Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed this week that nuclear weapons are a “defense” intended to launch a “retaliatory strike” if his country is targeted with such a weapon.

On Friday he also raised the possibility that Russia would change its military doctrine by adopting the principle of a pre-emptive strike to disarm the enemy.

Great Britain: the talks of pace they should not be exploited

In another context, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said on Sunday that any talks of pace in Ukraine should not be just a cover for Russia’s rearmament, adding that he sees no indication that Moscow enters negotiations with good intentions.

Cleverly added that Britain wants the talks pace take place “as soon as possible”, but reiterated that it is up to Ukraine to set the parameters for any negotiations that take place.

He said in an interview with the British channel “Sky News”: “Any negotiation has to be real, it has to be meaningful. They can’t just be a cover for a Russian rearmament and more troop recruitment”.

He continued: “I really don’t see any indication from the Russian side that gives me confidence that Vladimir Putin will step in in these talks with good intentions. The style of the statements in overall is still very conflicted.”
