One of Putin’s top allies has warned ‘nuclear apocalypse’ will become more likely if the West continues to supply Ukraine with increasingly powerful weapons.
Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev made the chilling remark after US President Joe Biden said he would back a joint effort to train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16 fighter jets.

Russia, which has more nuclear weapons than any other state, has repeatedly said the West is engaged in a proxy war with Russia over Ukraine that could escalate into a much bigger conflict.
The United States has committed $37 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since Putin sent troops into Ukraine in February last year.
‘The more weapons are supplied, the more dangerous the world will be,’ said Medvedev in his latest anti-West rant.
And the more destructive these weapons are, the more likely the scenario becomes of what is commonly called a nuclear apocalypse,’ Medvedev was quoted as saying.
The West says it wants to help Ukraine defeat Russia but has repeatedly insisted it does not want to trigger a direct confrontation between the U.S.-backed NATO military alliance and Russia.
But Medvedev said NATO did not appear to be taking the possibility of nuclear conflict seriously.
‘They are wrong. And at some point, events can move in a completely unpredictable scenario. And the responsibility will lie entirely with the North Atlantic Alliance,’ RIA quoted him as saying.
Meanwhile, Medvedev was also asked about the Russian fighters who have joined partisan groups, this week staging incursions into the border Belgorod region of Russia.
Medvedev – now deputy chair of Russia’s Security Council – said Ukraine’s denial of involvement was ‘lies’.
He said: ‘Responsibility for [the attacks] is with Kyiv… and eventually its sponsors – Washington, countries of the European Union, and with other countries that joined them like Great Britain.’
