Dmitry Medvedev: The West is playing chess with death | Entertainment
Dmitry Medvedev says the West is “playing a game of chess with death”.
The 56-year-old politician has been deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council since 2020 and has alleged Western countries are ‘taking advantage of the military conflict’ in Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched an ongoing invasion of his neighboring country . in February.
He said: “The allies who try to provoke Russia [are playing] a game of chess with death. The West would like to take advantage of the military conflict in Ukraine to push our country towards a new course of disintegration, to do everything to cripple Russian state institutions and deprive the country of effective controls, as happened in 1991.”
Dmitry – who also served as Russia’s president between 2008 and 2012 and Russia’s prime minister between 2012 and 2020 – went on to describe the attempts to “break” the tension as the “dirty dreams of Anglo-Saxon perverts” and said warned that attempting to “shred” the country to pieces would be “very dangerous”.
In a post on his messaging app channel, he added: “These are the dirty dreams of Anglo-Saxon perverts, who fall asleep with a secret thought about the splintering of our state, thinking of how to shred us into pieces, cut us into small pieces. Such attempts are very dangerous and should not be underestimated. These dreamers ignore a simple axiom: the forced disintegration of a nuclear power is always a game of chess with the death, in which one knows precisely when failure and the companion arrives: apocalypse for humanity.”
