Russia’s former President Dmitry Medvedev has warned of a nuclear war if Moscow is punished for war crimes and told the International Criminal Court (ICC) they must not punish them, in a sign that the Kremlin is clearly worried.
Medvedev warned that the “existence of mankind” is under threat and said the ICC should be careful attacking a country that has the “largest nuclear potential.”
He pointed out to the ICC that they never punished the US for their global aggression and they should refrain from trying to “legal void” actions against Moscow.
Medvedev wrote on Telegram on Wednesday, “The idea of punishing the country that has the largest nuclear potential is absurd in itself.
“And potentially threatens the existence of mankind.”
He branded the US as a “daredevil or an idiot” accusing them of trying to “sow chaos and destruction” through the ICC.
He added, “All American history, from the time of the conquest of the Indians, is a bloody war of annihilation. And we are talking about the most brutal extermination of the civilian population.
“It has become a signature style of American politics, whoever is in power there. During World War II, the United States destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in this way – only to justify the huge expenses for the nuclear ‘Manhattan Project.’
“Vietnam and Korea, Yugoslavia and Iraq, Cuba, Afghanistan and Syria are well aware of how disastrous the consequences of such invasions are – the list is long, and constantly updated.
“America has killed more than 20 million people in 37 countries since the end of World War II, according to a study published in Global Research.”
Medvedev continued, “The number of victims of the criminal policy of the United States today is comparable to the victims of the Nazi regime.
“So who’s going to give us a show trial?
“Those who kill people and commit war crimes with impunity, but do not meet real condemnation in the international structures financed by them?
“Those who so firmly believed in their exclusivity and impunity?
“Those who believe they have the right to judge others, but be beyond the jurisdiction of any court?
‘With Russia, this will not work. They understand this very well. Therefore, the filthy dogs of war stop by with their disgusting bark.
“But the United States and their useless mongrels should remember the words of Scripture: “Judge not, lest you be judged; So that one day ‘the great day of His wrath will not come to their house, and who can stand?’.”
