(RoyalPatriot.com )- Last week, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said the West plans to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin and is risking nuclear war.
Lavrov told Russia’s TASS news agency that “anonymous officials” at the US Pentagon are openly plotting an assassination attempt on Putin when they voice threats of a “decapitating strike” on the Kremlin.
He warned that those who would ponder such a plot “should think better about the possible consequences of such plans.”
Lavrov also told TASS that it was “no longer a secret to anyone” that the goal of the United States and NATO is to achieve “victory over Russia on the battlefield” as a way to significantly weaken or destroy Russia. To achieve this strategic goal, the US and NATO “are ready for a lot,” Lavrov said.
He the United States would be “the main beneficiary” of such a “hot conflict” as the US “seeks to extract the maximum” economic and military benefit from it. Lavrov accused Washington of trying to break Russia’s “traditional ties” with Europe while further subjugating “the European satellites.”
And while Lavrov was issuing warnings, former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev was taking to Twitter to issue outlandish New Year predictions.
In a tongue-in-cheek Twitter thread last Monday, Dmitry Medvedev, the outspoken deputy head of the Kremlin’s Security Council offered up his predictions for 2023.
Medvedev claimed that the UK would rejoin the European Union while Germany will establish a Fourth Reich that would include Poland, the Baltic states, the Czech Republic, Romania, Slovakia, Ukraine, and “other outcasts.”
He suggested that the United States would experience a new civil war with California and Texas seceding while Elon Musk will win the presidential election in some US states.
Medvedev said the world’s largest stock markets and financial institutions would “leave the US and Europe” for Asia.
He said the IMF and the World Bank would “crash” and the US dollar would no longer be used as the global reserve currency with digital currencies taking its place.
