Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev threatens Ukraine with a "judgement day" in the event of a strike on Crimea. The Presidential Office of Ukraine responded that Medvedev causes only pity.
Medvedev's quote: "… Some exalted bloody clowns, who periodically pop up there with some statements, also try to threaten us, I mean the attack on the Crimea, and so on.
...If something like this happens, for all of them there will instantly come the "day of judgment", very fast and toilful, it will be very difficult to hide."
Details: In turn, Mykhailo Podoliak, adviser to the head of the Presidential Office, called Medvedev a small, forgotten person who causes only pity.
Podoliak’s quote: "The portrait of modern Russia – Dmitry Medvedev, who threatens someone with "Judgment Day". Small person forgotten by history, who tries to seem serious and scary, but in reality causes only pity. "Just a little more and I will show you all!". Show what? Murder one more child?"
Reminder: On July 16, the representative of the Chief Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense Vadym Skibitskyi said that the military facilities of the Russian Federation on the territory of the occupied Crimea is one of the goals which should hit the Ukrainian troops.
On July 15, Minister of Defense Oleksii Reznikov confirmed that Ukraine has committed itself not to use HIMARS on targets on the territory of the Russian Federation.
At the same time, when asked whether the Ukrainian side's obligations apply to Crimea, Reznikov said: "I told (US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin - ed.) that we have enough strategic facilities in the Ukrainian territories occupied by the Russians. To which he replied: We understand you."
