Dmitry Medvedev claimed that if Ukraine tries to regain the Crimean Peninsula, annexed by Russia in 2014, to “divide the Russian state” the Kremlin can use “any weapon” to end the Ukrainian “infection”.

Dmitry Medvedev said Russian forces could conquer Kiev or Lviv “if that’s what it takes”.

In addition, the former Russian president stated that if Ukraine tries to recover the Crimean Peninsula, annexed by Russia in 2014, to “divide the Russian state”, the Kremlin can use “any weapon” to end such an “infection”. The statements were made in an interview with the Russian news agency RIA Novosti, where the current vice-president of the Security Council of Russia defended: “We cannot rule out anything. If it is necessary to reach Kiev, then we will go to Kiev; if it is necessary to arrive to Lviv, so let’s go to Lviv to destroy this infection”.

Dmitry Medvedev had already reacted to the arrest warrant against Vladimir Putin issued by the International Criminal Court, stating that any attempt by Western countries to enforce this arrest warrant would be the same as “declaring war” on Russia.

In his comment he said: “Obviously this situation will never happen, but let’s imagine that it would happen: the current head of state traveled to a territory, such as Germany, and was arrested”.

In this scenario an arrest of the Russian president “would be a declaration of war against the Russian Federation. In that case, all our weapons, all our missiles, would be turned towards the German chancellor’s office”, Olaf Scholz added.
