Former Russian Pres Threatens U.S. With ‘Earthly Fire’

( – Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev had harsh words for the decision makers in Washington, D.C. and Kyiv after a missile attack on Crimea resulted in the deaths of five civilians and hundreds of injuries. Medvedev is a Putin ally and deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council.

Medvedev said that the U.S. will burn in sacred and early fires for its part in the ongoing conflict. The missiles used in the attack were U.S.-built Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) which were sent by the Biden administration along with approval to use the weapons to strike inside Russian territory.

The Russians reportedly shot down the missiles which were targeting Sevastopol in Crimea but debris still fell onto the ground causing harm to the people that were simply going about their day. Medvedev suggested the responsibility for the strikes was solely with American and Ukrainian leaders.

Suggesting “both will burn in hell,” Medvedev suggested both sacred and earthly fires would consume both nations. He also qualified the attack as terrorism carried out by radical extremists. He said that the timing was also suggestive as it was executed during an Orthodox holiday.

Medvedev qualified the current regime in Kyiv as disciples of Stepan Bandera; Bandera led Ukrainian nationalists in opposition to the Soviet regime in Russia during the Second World War. He’s a controversial figure, alternatively seen as a fascist and Hitler ally or a Ukrainian war hero depending on one’s perspective.

Neither the U.S. or Ukraine have issued any public comments regarding the strike.

The war has no sign of coming to a conclusion any time soon. North Korea and Russia recently signed a mutual defense agreement. North Korea has also been accused of shipping thousands of rounds of artillery to Russia, which has been denied.

Observers have also noted a relaxing of conditions for the use of nuclear weapons, with many warning that a direct conflict between the nuclear-armed states is a real possibility if things continue along the current trajectory.
