More Strategic Warnings from High-Level Russians, Security Council Leaders at ‘Knowledge’ Marathon
April 26, 2023, 2022 (EIRNS)—High-level Russian authorities continue issuing strategic warnings to the West, whose Establishment appears to be deaf, dumb and blind to the unfolding reality.
Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev, former President and Prime Minister, addressed participants in the Znaniye (Knowledge) educational marathon on April 25 and said: “I cannot say what the last straw, what the trigger may be. But it may happen at some point. We all need to work to ensure that this threat of global confrontation, of a hot, full-scale World War III should not materialize,” he stressed. He said that Russia by no means wished to see this happen, according to TASS, “but world tensions are white-hot indeed.”
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on April 24 spoke about NATO. “NATO is not an instrument of peace; it is an instrument of confrontation. NATO was designed and made this way, as an instrument of confrontation. It is a war machine. And it has been approaching our borders this whole time,” he said. “We were uncomfortable and we warned them and told them: ‘Let us discuss our concerns.’ But they did not want to,” he noted, adding that the West is seeking cover up with silence or lies. “Nevertheless, it was so and we must remember that; we must not forget about it and we must talk about it, and not shy away, to be confident about it,” Peskov stressed.
And Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev warned on April 25 that the U.S. may be preparing biological warfare against Russia, and the preparations should be made. “Specific biological research being used by the United States in developing military programs requires the closest attention of our scientific community,” Patrushev stated. He further said that there are technological breakthroughs that “may affect the global balance of power further down the road.” He referred to “an avalanche-like increase in global research in the sphere of IT and quantum technology, as well as AI.... Experts claim that the use of such technologies can [lead to] and has already prompted a social transformation.”
