Medvedev Warns That Any U.S. Strike on Russian Targets Will Be the 'Start of World War'

•, By Ethan Huff

Dmitry Medvedev, who has been quite vocal lately about the West's behavior towards Russia, announced to the world this week that World War III will be set in motion the moment the U.S. strikes Russia in any capacity.

The current Deputy Chair of Russia's Security Council, Medvedev said this after Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski stated that the U.S. will conduct such a strike if Russia uses any kind of nuclear weaponry in Ukraine.

In a post on X, Medvedev made the suggestion that Sikorski "apparently has decided to scare his masters" with such a statement, unlike the U.S. which is "more cautious" than the Poles.

"Americans hitting our targets means starting a world war, and a Foreign Minister, even of a country like Poland, should understand that," Medvedev added.

Poland pushing for world war

Medvedev also addressed similar statements made last month by Polish President Andrzej Duda about Poland's willingness to host U.S. nuclear weapons if offered the chance under NATO's sharing mechanism.

If any such arrangement comes to fruition and results in a nuclear strike on Russia, "Warsaw won't be left out and will surely get its share of radioactive ash," Medvedev assured about the outcome.

Sikorski, responding to Medvedev's warning, expressed skepticism about Russia ever even launching a nuclear strike in Ukraine.
