The threat from Dmitri Medvedev, number two on Putin’s Security Council: “Russia will take revenge for Western sanctions”

Former Russian President and current number two on the Security Council, Dmitri Medvedev, has declared that Russia “will take revenge” for the Western sanctions imposed in response to the Ukraine offensive and the death of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Medvedev stated on his Telegram account that the reason behind the sanctions is to harm Russian citizens for the benefit of the Western world, labeling them as enemies. He encouraged creating difficulties in the economies of these countries and inciting discontent towards Western authorities’ policies.

Moreover, Medvedev suggested carrying out undisclosed activities on Russian territories and has been accused of promoting disinformation campaigns in Western countries. Once considered a liberal figure, he has become a staunch critic of Western powers since the campaign in Ukraine began two years ago.

On the other hand, Ukrainian Chief of the General Staff, General Oleksander Sirski, expressed confidence in overcoming the Russian “darkness” as Ukraine enters the third year of war against Moscow. Despite facing challenges on the front, Sirski emphasized the importance of unity in achieving victory.

In light of the ongoing conflict, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni chaired a virtual G7 meeting in kyiv, discussing potential new sanctions against Russia. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo, and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen also visited the Ukrainian capital to mark the anniversary of the Russian invasion.

Russian President Vladimir Putin’s failed attempt to occupy kyiv in 2022 led to humiliating setbacks, while Ukraine’s subsequent counteroffensive in 2023 faced obstacles due to a lack of resources. The ongoing conflict continues to impact both nations and international relations.
