Ukraine, Medvedev attacks Crosetto, a rare fool


The deputy chairman of the Russian security council against the defense minister. "If a third world war were to break out, they won't save the tanks or even the fighter jets. Surely everything will be in rubble." Crosetto's reply: "If it is 'foolish' to help an attacked nation defend its existence, I am" (ANSA)

Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman

Dimitri Medvedev

attacks Defense Minister

Guido Crosetto.

"There are not many fools in the European power structures", writes the former Russian premier on Telegram but "the Italian defense minister has defined the supply of armored vehicles and other weapons to Ukraine as a way to avoid the Third World War . A rare eccentric".

"If a third world war were to break out, neither tanks nor fighter jets will save them. Surely everything will be in rubble," adds Medvedev.

Yesterday the defense minister, during an event in Rome, said that "the third world war would begin the moment Russian tanks arrived in Kiev and on the borders of Europe. Making sure they don't arrive is the only way to stop the third world war". 

In the post Medvedev also takes issue with the British who "insist on the fact that all the armaments that NATO has at its disposal should be supplied to Kiev 'immediately' as if this were the only way to avoid Russian expansion and a new world War".

And, returning to the Italian minister, he continues: "What to expect from an entrepreneur with an incomplete higher education and from his weak-minded neighbors, who in the pandemic got stoned right in their workplace, located at number 10 Downing Street . Although the spirit of W. Churchill would have been satisfied with his successors".

"If it is 'foolish' to help an attacked nation defend its existence, I am

. I would have done it even in reverse. Medvedev thinks about putting an end to the war": thus Defense Minister Guido Cosetto replies to the attack in a tweet by Medvedev.

If it's "foolish" to help a besieged nation defend its existence, they are.

I would have done it even with parts reversed.

Medvedev think about ending the war.

  "Probably - observes Crosetto - the vice president of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, Medvedev, known for his wisdom and his objectivity, is right in defining me 'a rare fool'. Medvedev is 'right' because, despite what he or the Russian Ambassador in Italy can try to do, insinuate and press to make me change my mind, spreading fake news about the Italian Defense or low-level personal attacks, I persist in thinking that it is right to help a nation attacked for no reason and no reason , like Ukraine, to defend its cities, its people and its existence. I would have been ready to do it - he concludes - also for the Russian people, with roles reversed.

"If the Russians did not seek a total victory, but only the end of hostilities and the restoration of international legality, which are the only objective of the Italian government and of my action as minister - Crosetto said again - it would be enough for them to end hostilities and sit down at the peace table. Only in this way, and immediately, would everything cease. Both the war and the military aid of Italy and of the other countries which are only helping an attacked State to defend itself against an aggressor State".
